Microsoft, TicketWeb Latest Victims of Online Hackers

News filtered out earlier this week about two recent security breaches. TechCrunch reported on an attack on Microsoft’s online store in India, which exposed user information including email addresses, order histories and addresses (but excluding credit card numbers). And during the weekend, U.K.-based TicketWeb suffered a breach of its own after the company’s direct marketing system was hacked, causing TicketWeb to send phishing emails to its own customers.

2012 is still pretty young, but we’re two breaches closer to Okta CEO Todd McKinnon’s prediction that one billion people will have their data stolen this year.
