British Airways confirms thousands of frequent-flyer accounts hacked
British Airways is the latest high-profile company to fall victim to a large-scale hack. The company confirmed on Sunday that a security breach affected tens of thousands of its users’ frequent-flyer accounts.
The UK-based airline told Mashable that users’ personal data, such as travel history and credit card information, have not been viewed or stolen. However, British Airways has temporarily frozen affected accounts, and said some people may not be able to access their earned miles at this time.
