ABTA involved in a data breach!

 
 

The Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) was breached late last month by hackers, as a result of this attack personal details for tour operators and consumers have been exposed online.

It is believed that up to 650 ABTA members personal data has been exposed aswell as upto 43,000 consumer’s personal details. All of this information has been exposed of the back of the breach late last month. It’s been reported that most of the records contained email addresses and encrypted passwords, but around 1000 records had much more sensitive information in.
