    EasyJet been hacked

    Be aware of any scammer who may get in touch with you with help or requests for info.

    EasyJet has admitted that a "highly sophisticated cyber-attack" has affected approximately nine million customers.

    It said email addresses and travel details had been stolen and that 2,208 customers had also had their credit card details "accessed".

    The firm has informed the UK's Information Commissioner's Office while it investigates the breach.

    They were hacked in January so details have been compromised for some time!

    Well, I got an email today saying my information was hacked. Five fucking months to tell me? Really? How the fuck is that even remotely acceptable?

    Our investigation found that your name, email address, and travel details were accessed for the easyJet flights or easyJet holidays you booked between 17th October 2019 and 4th March 2020. Your passport and credit card details were not accessed, however information including where you were travelling from and to, your departure date, booking reference number, the booking date and the value of the booking were accessed.

    Probably kicked out of them by the ICO.

    Now here's the thing, look at the email

    Notice of cyber security incident – be alert to phishing emails
    Dear Customer,

    I wanted to write to you personally in regards to a recent cyber security incident at easyJet.

    As you may have heard, we announced on 19th May 2020 that we were the target of an attack from a highly sophisticated source. As soon as we became aware of the attack, we took immediate steps to manage and respond to the incident, closing off the unauthorised access. We engaged leading forensic experts to investigate the issue and we also notified the National Cyber Security Centre and the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
    "write to you personally" and they can't be arsed to use my name.

    This is one of the tell-tale signs of a phisher.

    Yet the email's still got the tracking call-to-action links and spyware bloody images embedded

    So feck all learned from the attack then.
