A data breach affecting about 560 million Ticketmaster accounts and Santander Bank data of over 30 million customers, may have originated from attacks on cloud storage accounts with a company named Snowflake. As reported by Bleeping Computer, an investigation from cybersecurity firm Hudson Rock, suggests that a malicious actor gained access to these firms using the stolen credentials of a single Snowflake employee. The hacker reportedly bypassed authentication service Okta, generating session tokens to extract information from Snowflake.
