Hackers who masterminded a major security breach of Ticketmaster are being blamed for an attack on British Airways where the credit card details of 380,000 people were stolen, according to The Telegraph.
British Airways revealed late last week that hundreds of thousands of its customers’ personal and financial details had been stolen between August 21 and September 5.
RiskIQ researcher Yonathan Klinjsma said a shadowy group called Magecart, which is believed to have links to Romania and Lithuania, may have been responsible.
The group is known for carrying out devastating web-based credit card skimming scams and has been active since at least 2015, according to RiskIQ, a cyber-security consulting firm.
