What happened in the 2019 British Airways Data Breach?
Researchers at security firm Wandera uncovered unencrypted links within BA's e-ticketing process. Furthermore, they have warned that this vulnerability means that attackers could easily intercept these links to access and change the flight booking details and personal information of passengers.
The vulnerability with British Airway's e-ticketing system may have also exposed the following sensitive passenger information:
· Email addresses
· Phone numbers
· Membership numbers
· First and last names
· Booking references, itineraries, flight numbers, flight times, seat numbers and baggage allowances.
If you have received an email from BA about this then you may be able to claim compensation once the matter has been fully investigated.
To ensure that you are fully informed on this matter complete your details and we will notify you about the investigation and your legal rights when making a claim.
