It looks like the data from more than 26-million Ticketfly users was accessed in the hack that shut down the ticket seller last week.

An investigation by Engadget and Web security expert Troy Hunt discovered that the hacker has released some of the data to a public server and that at least 26,151,608 Ticketfly E-mail addresses were found in the files. There were also many usernames, phone numbers and home and billing addresses posted.

Ticketfly customers’ credit card information and passwords supposedly weren't compromised, but Engadget says the hacker has threatened to upload more files, "presumably if their ransom demands are not met."

The main Ticketfly site is still down, but most venue websites and individual ticket sales links are working again.
