Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE:DAL) is dealing with a Delta data breach.
According to the airline company, a small number of its customers saw their payment information stolen by hackers. It notes that the Delta data breach took place from Sept. 26 to Oct. 12. The company was alerted to the data breach last week.
The Delta data breach didn’t include any other stolen information, such as passports. It is planning to setup a website today that will provide customers with more information about the data breach. The airline also assures customers that they won’t be charged for fraudulent uses of their payment information.
Delta says that the data breach actually targeted 7.ai. This is an online service provider that works with it and other companies. The company notes that the data breach has been taken care of. Delta has confirmed as much via its own investigation. It is also working with authorities and security professionals to learn more about the matter, reports The New York Post.
