British Airways hacked as almost 400,000 sets of bank card details stolen

BRITISH Airways faces one of the worst cyber hacks in the UK as the bank details of 380,000 customers are compromised.

After the 15-day data breach from August 21 to September 5, British Airways (BA) customers are furious as they have been left having to cancel their credit cards.

British Airways admitted “criminal activity” had compromised the personal and financial details of customers who made bookings on its website or app from just before 11pm on August 21 until 9.45pm on Wednesday.

A nightmarish time for both customers and the airline, BA said that it was investigating the vast breach “as a matter of urgency”, while the National Crime Agency and National Cyber Security Centre are also assessing the hack.


If you believe that you have been affected by this incident, then please contact your bank or credit card provider and follow their advice.
