Data theft of some American Airlines customers
American Airlines said on Tuesday that there was no indication that the hackers misused personal information of its employees and customers. The airline said the hacker’s activities came to light in July.
The airline declined to say how many people’s personal information or information of that nature was stolen.
American Airlines spokesperson Curtis Blessing said: “American Airlines is aware of cases of the theft of personal information of its employees and customers. Only a few employees and customers’ e-mails were hacked and their personal information was stolen.”
He said that additional protective measures would be taken to prevent such incidents in future.
