LISBON, Portugal (AP) – Portugal’s national airline TAP Air Portugal says hackers obtained personal data of some of its customers and published the information on the dark web.
No payment data was taken in the cyber attack, the flag carrier said in a statement late Wednesday.
The attack began about a month ago and is being investigated by Portuguese authorities with the help of experts from Microsoft, the airline said.
The hackers obtained name, nationality, gender, date of birth and address, email and telephone contact details, the airline said without elaborating.
Portuguese newspaper Expresso reported that a hacker group called Ragnar’s Locker was leaking 1.5 million Tap Air Portugal customer data on the dark web.
