As far as blackmail goes, it was a relatively small request.
The hacker who claims to have gained access to a host of data from Ticketfly, prompting the Eventbrite-owned ticketing company to pull its site offline sometime late last night, told Mashable that he was only after a single bitcoin.
“[Yes] i asked them 1 bitcoin for protection,” explained the hacker, who goes by IShAkDz, over email, in addition to sharing a huge repository of allegedly stolen files. “But I did not receive a reply from them.”
