Last week, Cathay Pacific was hit with a data breach, to the tune of 9.4 million customers. It was one in a string of airline breaches, just one month after British Airways was targeted. Now it seems hackers are moving on to other modes of transportation: Europe’s Eurostar high-speed rail service.
In May, it was reported that Rail Europe had reported a three-month-long credit breach. This week, Eurostar is reporting unauthorized access to an undisclosed amount of accounts that took place between October 15 and 19.
With the discovery of the news, the rail service locked all accounts so that customers would have to reset their passwords. Customers whose accounts were targeted were contacted directly by Eurostar. The rail service said that payment details were not affected.
