User information of the UFC Fight Pass have been released by hackers according to MMAMania.com. UFC’s information is not the lone victim as information from various retail and media outlets have also been released as well. The hackers which go by the name “Anonymous” have also taken credit for UbiSoft, PSN, XBL, EA Games, Walmart and Dell as part of what they called LulzXmas hacking event.
According to The Daily Dot
“The stolen personal information was released in a massive text file posted the document sharing site Ghostbin. The compromised sites run the gamut from pornography to gaming to online shopping.
Some of the most significant leaks came from online video gaming networks like Xbox Live, the Sony PlayStation Network, and Twitch.tv. There was information from accounts at Walmart, Amazon, and Hulu Plus, as well as keys to computer games like The Sims 3 and Dragon Age: Origins, and a whole lot of porn sites.
Judging from the document, the following sites were compromised or, at the very least, had some of their user data stolen-possibly through malware installed onto users’ personal devices or other nefarious methods.”
This is not the first time the UFC’s official website has been hacked, back in June 2012 which resulted in the website being taken down temporarily. UFC TV is now UFC Fight Pass, the organization’s online streaming service that provides combat sports fans with live events, replays, and original programming. Naturally, that requires a credit card along with a monthly subscription (MMAMania.com)
