Chinese hackers are stealing details about airline passengers globally

The information that is produced in the operations of a business can be so much and so varied that many ends can be left untied, and if caution is not exercised when establishing an effective cybersecurity policy against the risks of data theft, then there is danger of exposing your customers. Regarding this, ZDNet reports that a group of Chinese hackers is taking advantage of security flaws in computer structures to collect data from passengers classified as "persons of interest."

The group known as Chimera, which is believed to operate in the interests of the Chinese state, has been analyzed in a report made last year, which describes its activities. It initially mentioned coordinated hacking attacks against the Taiwanese superconductor industry.

However, in a new report published a week ago by two cybersecurity firms, it was suggested that the main target of the attackers was the airline industry. Thus, the attacks on superconductor companies and airlines occurred in different geographical areas and not only in Asia, indicated the firms NCC and Fox-IT.
