Almost 400,000 British Airways customers have had their bank card details stolen in what is reported to be one of the most severe cyber-attacks in UK history.
Worryingly, while the BA data breach started over two weeks ago, it was only detected by the airline on Wednesday night. At that time BA told its customers about the breach and reported the incident to the police.
However, with 12 days between the BA data breach occurring and the incident being detected, questions are now being asked as to whether poor systems have made this cyber-attack worse.
All 38,000 customers who booked flights online or via the BA app during that time using a debit or credit card are affected.
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.
