IndiGo says its servers have been breached in a hacking incident
India’s largest airliner IndiGo said on Thursday that some of its servers were recently subjected to a hacking incident in early December and some of its data servers may have been breached due to hacking. IndiGo also informed customers that there are chances that some internal document hackers will upload to public websites and platforms.
IndiGo in its press release said: “We would like to make this disclosure that some of our servers were subject to a hacking incident earlier this month. We were able to restore our systems in a very short time with minimal impact. “
The statement further added: “There were some data server segments that were breached, so there is a possibility that hackers will upload some internal documents to public websites and platforms. We are aware of the seriousness of the problem and continue to work with all relevant experts and law enforcement to ensure that the incident is fully investigated. “
IndiGo has contacted legal experts and law enforcement officials to make sure the damage is contained.
Cyber attacks on servers of financial institutions, medical services, aviation companies, media companies and other institutions increased during the pandemic. Vaccine research and financial institutions have been targeted by hacking and malware in recent months.
