Lady Gaga‘s UK website was attacked by cyber hackers from the SwagSec group last month, it has emerged.
However, the label said that although emails, first names and surnames were copied, no passwords or financial data was compromised.
The hackers apparently issued a death threat to the singer and branded her homophobic.
“The hackers took a content database dump from www.ladygaga.co.uk and a section of email, first name and last name records were accessed. There were no passwords or financial information taken,” Universal stated.
“We take this very seriously and have put in place additional measures to protect personally identifiable information. All those affected have been advised.”
Meanwhile, Gaga‘s web woes continued earlier this week when her official YouTube account was suspended over a copyright dispute with a Japanese media company.
