Ticketmaster is squarely to blame for the security breach that spilt the credit card details of 40,000 customers, according to Jordi Torras, CEO of Inbenta.
However, Torras last night claimed that Ticketmaster was to blame for placing that code on a sensitive payments page - something the company would have strongly cautioned against if it had been aware that was how Ticketmaster was going to use it.
In a statement on the company's website, Torras added that his company received notification of the breach from Ticketmaster on Saturday evening.
"Ticketmaster directly applied the script to its payments page, without notifying our team.
"Had we known that the customised script was being used this way, we would have advised against it, as it incurs greater risk... The attacker(s) located, modified, and used this script to extract the payment information of Ticketmaster customers processed between February and June 2018."
After being notified, Inbenta conducted its own code audit of both general and customised scripts and concluded that only Ticketmaster was compromised - directly as a result of Ticketmaster's own actions.
The source of the compromise was the alteration of three files affecting three specific websites run by Ticketmaster
"We can fully assure our customers and end-users that no other implementation of Inbenta across any of our products or customer deployments has been affected," the company asserted.
However, Inbenta cannot monitor the particular pages on which customers embed its technology.
Earlier today, start-up bank Monzo also pointed the finger of blame at Ticketmaster, claiming that it informed the company of a security breach in April. Ticketmaster, however, told Monzo a week later that its investigation hadn't uncovered a breach.
