Nine Million People Get Data Stolen in Massive EasyJet Hack Scandal
Swiss airline EasyJet has been hacked, and the personal information of nine million users has been compromised. The hackers gained access to email addresses, travel details, and credit card details of 2,208 customers.
The airline has said they were blindsided by a “highly sophisticated attack”. Although, that is what you would expect a company as big as EasyJet to say after such an embarrassing event.
EasyJet has stated that none of the information has been misused, but at this point, it is hard to tell exactly what the hackers are doing with the stolen data.
EasyJet discovered the breach in January but waited till April to inform its users. The public did not hear of it till May.
The CEO of EasyJet, in a press release, stated that it had informed the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) about the breach. They were advised to reach out and offer support to customers who had their travel information or credit card details stolen.

ProLock Ransomware Decryptor is Highly Dangerous, warns the FBI
A new ransomware is in town, and the FBI is on its tail like a hungry predator. It’s called Prolock, and it’s wreaking havoc in the different industries in the United States. The FBI has issued a warning to all companies, stating that the decryptor causes more damage, specifically data loss.
Prolock used to be known as PwndLocker. Financial technology company Diebold Nixdorf has been one of Prolock’s biggest targets so far. The FBI has advised affected companies to avoid paying the ransom for a couple of reasons. For starters, the money paid might be diverted to criminal organizations and activities. Furthermore, paying the money ensures that these people continue their heinous crimes. Lastly, who really knows if these people will send you the decryptor after they receive the money? Worst of all, they might send a decryptor that does not work, and you would be left with nothing.
That is exactly what the FBI discovered. It turns out the decryptor provided by the attackers did not work properly. Occasionally, the decryption key sent by the hackers corrupted company files. Most of the time, these hackers will steal company information before they are encrypted and use them to blackmail these companies or sell the data on the dark web.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has
    a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my
    authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being ripped
    off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    First of all I want to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
