Airline Cyberattack: Your Info Could Have Been Stolen
Another security breach could have compromised your information and this time it's through a major airline. This is the third information security breach this week. First it was Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor department stores, then Panera Bread Company admitted their customer information had been hacked. Now Delta Airlines has come forward saying that some of their customer data has been breached.
Delta Airlines says that customer payment information may have been compromised in a cyberattack last fall. According to CBS 6, Delta said that the payment information was hacked from September 26th through October 12th. They confirmed with federal law enforcement and forensics that the breach stopped by the end of October.
Delta also said that the cyberattack only took customer payment information and no other personal details, security or frequent flyer account information was affected.
Customers will not be held responsible if their payment cards were hacked. For more information about the cyberattack, click here.
