In the world’s biggest airline data breach, a hacker accessed details of 9.4 million Cathay Pacific customers.
Names, addresses, passport numbers, and other personal data were exposed, though there’s no evidence any of it was misused, the airline said.
The Hong Kong-based carrier discovered suspicious activity in March and confirmed the unauthorized access in May. Some local politicians criticized Cathay for taking so long to reveal the breach.
Shares of the company slumped the most in almost two years following the announcement, shaving $201 million off its market value.
