British Airways says customer data stolen in data breach

British Airways says customer data stolen in data breach

"We advise every client who thinks that this incident might be related to his bank or credit card provider and to follow their instructions", BA notes.

British Airways has stated that it is investigating the theft of data of its customers from the website and mobile app "as a matter of urgency".

Customers who bought tickets from British Airways in the past few weeks may have had their personal information stolen, the airline said on Thursday.

The breach has been resolved and the British Airways website is working normally, IAG said.

He added that no passport data had been obtained in what he called a "very sophisticated, malicious criminal attack", but that British Airways is "100 per cent committed" to compensating customers. We have notified the police and relevant authorities.

BA is the latest major United Kingdom company to report such an attack - seemingly the largest since the owner of Currys PC World, Dixons Carphone, admitted in early summer that nine million of its customers had been hit by a data breach.

As Cruise reports, Cruz has reported compensation to those customers who have been financially damaging, and has made it clear that "charging" was not a violation of the company's encrypted information.

In the U.S., Delta Airlines said in April that payment-card information for several hundred thousand customers could have been exposed by a malware breach months earlier. "We discovered that something had happened, and immediately we began to work", he said.

Customers' banking information was compromised, but no travel information.

"I´ve not heard anything from them on this and I´ve just had to cancel the card I used".

We take very seriously the safety of our customer data, "said Alex Cruz, president and executive director of the company".

The NCA is set up to tackle the most serious and organised crime posing the highest risk to public security in Britain.
