Millions of Thai Lion passenger records found online

Millions of records belong to Thai Lion Air have been found online in a massive data breach from the airline.

Discovered by security researcher Under The Breach, the database of 21 million records included passenger and reservation IDs, physical addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, names, dates of birth, phone numbers, passport numbers and passport expiration dates.

According to Bleeping Computer, the database is being openly shared on online forums. It’s believed that the database may have been taken from the unsecured Amazon Web Services S3 bucket.

The data, in the wrong hands, could be used for identity theft and other nefarious purposes.

Chiang Mai One has contacted Thai Lion Air for comment and will update the post if a response is received.
