Hackers stole credit card information of 380,000 customers of British Airways.
The company announced that cyber criminals got access to the names, addresses, emails and credit card details including the card number, expiration date and security code of travelers who booked flights on British Airways' website and app between August 21 and September 5. CEO Alex Cruz called it the worst data breach since the company’s website was launched 20 year s ago. British Airways has promised to pay for a credit check for customers and to compensate them for any losses.
According to the airline, it began notifying customers late on Thursday. Some customers on Friday complained that they first got to know about it from the media versus the company, while some others claimed to have received blank emails from the airline.
