What exactly happened?
In May 2021, there was a major cyber attack on Air India’s data center. The personal details of the passengers were also stolen in the cyber attack. This includes credit card, passport and other information. The cyber attack on Air India’s data center took place in February this year. However, the details were revealed in May.
The personal information of many passengers has been stolen in this cyber attack. The data of about 45 lakh passengers has been stolen. This includes information on travelers from home and abroad. This includes birth date, name, contact, passport information, ticket information, password and credit card information, Air India had said.
‘Data theft by SITA PSS’
This data has been stolen by SITA PSS. This data processor works for passenger service. It is also responsible for storing and processing passenger data. Credit card information of any passenger has been stolen in case of data leak. However, the CVV number data was not stolen. The security of this server was enhanced after it was hacked.
As soon as we got information about this cyber attack, we immediately inquired. The server affected by this attack has been secured. In addition, various credit card holders have been contacted and informed about this. Also, the password used by Air India for the FFP program was reset.
