Air India recently disclosed suffering a data breach which exposed the personally identifying information of 4.5 million customers.
The breach exposed customers’ names, dates of birth, contact information, passport information, frequent flyer data, and some credit card information. Although passwords were not affected by the attack, the airline advises all customers to change their passwords as an extra security precaution.
The disclosure of the Air India data breach comes three months after air transport data giant SITA disclosed its own breach; in fact, the two are related, as investigators continue to assess the damage. According to reports, customers that registered between August 26, 2011, and February 3, 2021, were affected.
We spoke to several cybersecurity experts to learn more from the attack.
