Cyberattack steals passenger data from Portuguese airline
LISBON, Portugal (AP) — TAP Air Portugal, Portugal’s national airline, said hackers obtained some of its customers’ personal data and posted it on the dark web.
The flag carrier said in a statement late Wednesday that no payment data was collected in the cyberattack.
The airline said the attack, which began almost a month ago, was being investigated by Portuguese authorities with the help of Microsoft experts.
The airline said the hackers obtained names, nationalities, gender, dates and addresses of birth, email and phone contact details, without elaborating.
Portuguese newspaper Expresso claims that a hacker group called Ragnar Locker is providing information on 1.5 million TAP Air Portugal customers on the dark web.
