Lufthansa says frequent flyer accounts were hacked
Two weeks after hackers broke into the accounts of British Airways’ frequent flyers, Lufthansa says it has suffered a similar attack. The criminals were able to use miles to make purchases.
The hackers used lists to try to match usernames and passwords, Reuters reports, and whenever they matched they bought flights.
Lufthansa said it “took immediate action” by blocking several hundred frequent flyer accounts and returned any miles spent by the hackers back to customer accounts.
