Bangkok Airways. Notice of Cyber Security Incident.


Recommended Posts

I saw this story yesterday:


Bangkok Airways reports cyberattack



Here is a extract from the email BA sent to me today: 

"We write to inform you now out of the greatest caution that this incident has exposed some of your personal data in our possession to be compromised by the attacker. From our investigation, the personal data that has been accessed are passenger name, family name, nationality, gender, phone number, email, address, contact information, passport information, historical travel information, partial credit card information, and special meal information. Please be assured that such incident does not affect the aviation security and we are still open for business as usual."

"As a preliminary protection measures, we recommend you bla bla bla contact your bank or credit card provider and follow their bla bla bla advice and change any compromised passwords as soon as you can. We also would like to caution you to be aware of any suspicious and unsolicited calls and/or emails, as the attacker may be claiming to be Bangkok Airways and attempt to gather your personal data by deception (known as 'phishing'). We will not be contacting any customers asking for credit card details and/or any financial details and any such requests should be bla bla bla reported to the police and relevant authorities."

You know when "they" ask you if you want to store your credit card info in their database so you don't have to enter credit card info each time? don't do that. 

fortunately nothing about penis size* for airlines or I would be getting a lot of texts right now.    

Happy Sunday Everybody! 

*sorry this was going so well up until that part.
