Travelex hacked

8 January 2020

News is emerging of a serious 'ransomware' attack by cyber hackers against global travel money company, Travelex.

You may have seen their kiosks at airports, but they also provide travel money services to banks and retailers such as HSBC, Barclays Bank, Tesco and Sainsbury's.

In order to contain the problem, the company has called on cyber security experts, including the National Cyber Security Centre, for technical support and there are reports that Travelex staff are resorting to the use of pen and paper in order to carry out transactions.
