SITA, a technology company that provides services to the transportation industry and has 400 members based in Geneva, and who claims that most air passengers touch its technology during travels, was hacked.,,Singapore Airlines today informed select KrisFlyer program members whose member information had been breached at SITA PSS. We have now added statements from Finnair, Lufthansa, and several other airlines.
,,,,,,,,Conclusion,CORRECTION: We earlier incorrectly stated that SITA would have been owned or part of IATA. That is not the case. It provides services to more than 400 member airlines and cooperates with other industry bodies such as IATA.,At least in Singapore Airlines’ case, only the frequent flier number, name of the member, and tier level has been accessible through the SITA PSS hack.,Perhaps other airlines have used this platform to share more passenger information.,It is unclear what other information processed by SITA PSS on behalf of airlines has been accessed by these hackers and how widespread the breach has been. I would expect other airlines soon to follow with emails like the one from Singapore Airlines.,
