Portugal’s TAP says hackers stole and published passengers’ personal data



(Reuters) — Portuguese airline TAP told customers on Thursday that hackers had stolen some of their personal data and published it on the dark web, although the state-owned airline said all payment details appeared to be secure.

TAP said in a letter to customers that the cyber attack last month obtained from its servers people’s names, nationalities, email and home addresses, telephone contacts and frequent flyer numbers.

“The release of the personal data via open sources can increase the risk of their illegal use, namely for the purpose of obtaining other data that can compromise the digital systems in fraudulent attempts such as phishing,” TAP said.

The airline urged customers to be wary of unsolicited contacts requesting personal information and told them not to click on links and attachments in suspicious emails. TAP also recommended changing passwords to stronger ones and said it would refrain from further contact with individual customers about the issue to avoid confusion.
