Air Canada has suffered a data breach and is forcing a password reset on all 1.7 million users of its mobile app, though apparently only 20,000 of the mobile app accounts were accessed by the attackers.
How did it happen?
“We detected unusual login behaviour with Air Canada’s mobile App between Aug. 22-24, 2018,” the company announced on Wednesday.
“We immediately took action to block these attempts and implemented additional protocols to protect against further unauthorized attempts. As an additional security precaution, we have locked all Air Canada mobile App accounts to protect our customers’ data.”
