BA says a further 185,000 payment cards possibly hit in cyber attack
26 Oct 2018

International Airlines Group (ICAG.L) said an investigation into the theft of customers’ data at its British Airways unit showed hackers may have stolen the personal information of a further 185,000 customers.

British Airways apologised in September after the credit card details of hundreds of thousands of its customers were stolen over a two-week period in the most serious attack on its website and app.

On Thursday BA said that it was notifying the holders of another 77,000 payment cards that the name, billing address, email address, card, payment information including card number, expiry date and security codes had potentially been compromised, and a further 108,000 without the security code.
