Data of thousands of airline passengers around the world was recently hacked via a “highly sophisticated” attack on the IT systems of SITA, which serves around 90% of the global airline industry. SITA runs services like ticketing, baggage control and other passenger services for airlines. It serves the Star Alliance that includes Singapore Airlines, Finnair, Malaysian Airlines, Lufthansa, United and others. The hacker attack on the company’s servers once again highlights how cyber-criminals have become more sophisticated and active over the years.
