Det thailandske flyselskab Bangkok Airways blev udsat for et ransomware-angreb, men nægtede at betale løsesum. Derefter blev deres data lækket.

Thailandske Bangkok Airways har fået lækket data, efter at flyselskabet nægtede at give efter for et ransomware-angreb.

Det skriver The Register.

Ransomware-gruppen LockBit, der står bag angrebet, gav Bangkok Airways fem dage til at betale løsesummen. I stedet for at betale meddelte flyselskabet om angrebet i en pressemeddelelse, hvilket fik hackerne til at lække mellem 100 og 200 gigabyte data, hvoraf størstedelen er virksomhedsrelaterede dokumenter, men også persondata.

De lækkede persondata kan inkludere navne, nationaliteter, køn, telefonnumre, e-mailadresser, adresser, pas-oplysninger, rejsehistorik og delvise kreditkortnumre.

Bangkok Airways har informeret kunder og de relevante myndigheder og undersøger nu angrebet.
