018 Easyjet 425x283

19 May 2020

Easyjet has admitted to having its systems hacked in January 2020.

Apparently data relating to about nine million customers' has been compromised, but the airline has stated that "There is no evidence that any personal information of any nature has been misused, however, on the recommendation of the ICO, we are communicating with the approximately nine million customers whose travel details were accessed to advise them of protective steps to minimise any risk of potential phishing."

Airlines have been in a difficult position ever since the COVID-19 pandemic struck and this can only add to Easyjet's problems.  It can only be hoped that its customers are not affected adversely by this breach.
