British Airways owner IAG says 185,000 more customers may have been hacked in cyber attack



British Airways owner IAG has said 185,000 further customers may have had their personal details compromised during a cyber attack.
 
The airline group said it was contacting two groups of customers not previously notified, as part of an investigation into a cyber breach that took place earlier this year.
 
 
Holders of 77,000 payment cards whose name, billing address, email address, card payment information - including card numbers, expiry date and card verification value (CVV) numbers - have potentially been compromised.


A further 108,000 customers' personal details without CVVs were also compromised, the group said.


The attack targeted people making reward point bookings and those who used a payment card between 21 April and 28 July 2018.
