30 Oct Cathay Pacific Warns Customers Against Phishing Attacks
Cathay Pacific warned its customers this week to guard against suspicious links as they are expecting a surge of phishing attacks to hit their passengers following the airline’s recently revealed data breach.
On its website, the airline reminded passengers that it will only be sending information related to their data security event via firstname.lastname@example.org, and passengers should not click on variations of links to data monitoring services.
While Cathay Pacific is offering a 12-month free data breach surveillance service to affected passengers,
Hong Kong’s Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Centre at the Productivity Council warns that it would also involve handing personal information to a vendor, posing an additional data security risk.
