#1 British Airways Admits Yet Another Data Hack

Post by fountainhall » Fri Oct 26, 2018 12:37 pm

If you booked a BA redemption Avios ticket between 21 April and 28 July this year, you may be amongst 185,000 flyers whose credit card details were hacked. This comes on top of the 244,000 card details the airline admitted last month had been hacked.

I am not sure if the two are linked but I used up the last of my Avios points to book a CX ticket Hong Kong to Taipei in early July. Three weeks later that credit card was used to try and purchase a Garuda ticket from Jakarta to Singapore. Fortunately Citibank’s fraud division spotted it and the card was cancelled.
