  • Disneyland Website Hacked?

    Thought you folks would like to know about this. I was trying to order 2 5 day park hopper tickets off the Disneyland Web site for my trip to Disneyland next week. The site kept saying it could not confirm my credit card. After 4 attempts I called American Express to ask what was up. They told me the transaction was being rejected due to a high number of fruad complaints. I told him that I was using the Disneyland web site to order the tickets and that I doubted they were trying to defraud me. He told me that the transactions they were seeing was actually coming from pokemon.com, a known fruadulant site . I verified the number of request and the amounts. He said there is a strong possiblity the Disneyland site had been hacked if the request came through pokemon.com

    So in short, I cant order my park hoppers over the web. Anybody know what might be going on here?

      Wow, that is scary! Have you tried calling Disneyland's guest service to ask them about this?

        I called Disney Ticketing. Working with them, I was able to verify that the URL for the page where I ordered the tickets was correct. They gave me an e-mail address to report the problem to. I am waiting for a reply.

        After thinking about it, I am guessing that these pokemon folks are contractors that Disney uses to do their online ticket purchase processing. Such a firm would probably handle other types of tickets, such as concerts, and would thus be a huge target for purchases made using stolen credit card numbers. Perhaps this firm was hit by enough identity theft that American Express chose to stop dealing with them

            Yup, Pokemon. Thats about as unDisney as you can get. I had the guy at American Express repeat it serveral times to make sure I heard him right.

                  Please note that I am not yet sure it was a hack. AE simply claimed the site that submited the request was known for fruad and mentioned the strongpPossibility oif a hack. All I know for sure is that something strange is going on. I am still waiting to hear back from the Disney folks that I emailed. Hopefully they are working hard to investigate the problem (if nothing else, I want to buy my tickets, which I cant do while the problem persists). As soon as I know more, I will post it here.

                    Umm... I'd be worried about your card if it IS a hack.

                    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                      That worries me too. AMEX has assured me that they will be watching my account for anything that looks even slightly out of line. If this does turn out to be a hack, I will have them issue me a new card number.

                        do some virus/adware/spyware/etc... scans and make sure something's not installed on your drive picking up transactions. have you ordered anything from other sites?

                          Yes, I order off the web all the time from this machine. The spyware scan is a good idea though. I'll see if spybot and norton find anything.

                            That is good advice.
                            I'm having trouble believing that a Disney online purchase would not come through as Disney. In fact, I've ordered tickets online from Disney.com before and surely would have noticed if the charge came through as anything but Disney.

                            Being a merchant myself, I can tell you that this is truly scary stuff if American Express is cutting off their ability to run charges through them. I highly doubt that this Pokemon charge is legitimate because Disney would be all over that if their ability to accept AmEx cards was at risk. Either way, if the Pokemon charges are the result of your attempts to charge through the Disney.com site, Disney should be all over it!

                              It is possible to hack a website and have the information you send to it redirected somewhere else. That could have happened and would explain the Pokemon name.

                              This of course is just speculation, but all this sounds really fishy to me...
