Hackers like Burning Man
SAN FRANCISCO- Hackers broke into the Burning Man festival website and got the first batch of tickets to the festival that happens this summer.
Organizers figured out something had gone wrong when 80,000 people tried to buy tickets to the large festival in a remote, dry lake bed in the Black Rock Desert of Northern Nevada. Just 20,000 were guaranteed two tickets.That means about three-quarters of the people were turned away.
Organizers estimate 200-people cheated and got in first with the hack and promised to find a way to cancel the culprits' tickets. Organizers also say they're taking steps to prevent it from happening again.
