British Airways data breach – hackers made millions

Hackers may have made millions selling credit card details stolen from almost 245,000 British Airways customers during a major cyber attack in August, according to experts.

Cybersecurity firms Flashpoint and Risk IQ discovered that hackers were charging between $9 (£6.95) and $50 (£38.60) for each card’s information on the dark web.

They estimated that Magecart, the group reportedly behind the attack, may have raked in up to $12.2m (£9.4m).
