The login details of Tokyo Olympic ticket buyers have apparently leaked on the internet as told by a government official last Wednesday. It includes usernames and passwords.
Also, the same data of Paralympic ticket buyers and users who utilized the volunteer portal for the Summer Games have been leaked, too.
As per an official, the leakage is “not large” in terms of scale and they have already taken measures to prevent things from getting worse.
It’s been speculated that the usernames and passwords for the games’ volunteers and ticket buyers may have been stolen by unauthorized access to smartphones and computers. Such details have been posted on a website known to expose personal information.
While only the login details were exposed, those who will use it and sign in will have the ability to see the user’s name, address, and even registered bank account. Something that can be prevented by easily changing login details.
