4 March: Vantaa, Finland

Finnair’s customer loyalty database was hacked, a statement by the airline said. Some 200,000 frequent flyers were effected when hackers breached the Finnair Plus program. The airline reported the event to the country’s Data Protection Authority. Finnair says that although names and customer numbers were compromised, the hackers did not get credit card info, contact info or passwords. The airline also says their own systems were not hacked – this event took place via a service provider that held the data. Nevertheless, the airline recommended changing passwords to their Plus members.
