Air India’s data breach threatens data of 4.5 million passengers
Air India’s data breach has put the data of 4.5 million passengers at risk. The system broke the data of 4.5 million passengers registered between August 2011 and February 2021.
The bricked data contained information such as name, contact information, and ticket information.
The hackers also had credit card information, but the CVC or CVV did not allow them to misuse that information.
The data breach was first reported by Air India on February 25 and a case was registered on March 19 for investigation.
Only on March 25 and May 4 did the company find out which passenger’s data had been stolen. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
According to the report of Blipping Computer, passengers of not only Air India but also many other flights have also fallen victim to this hack.
Passengers of Air New Zealand, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Jeju Air, Lufthansa, Malaysia Airlines, SAS and Singapore Airlines have also fallen victim to the data breach.
