Eurostar urges customers to reset passwords following data breach

Eurostar,a high-speed railway service connecting Great Britain and Europe,has asked all its customers to reset their account passwords after the company detected repeated login attempts. Eurostar customers' email addresses and passwords may have been affected by a breach in mid-October; however, the company reported that users' sensitive data like credit card information was not compromised.

How Eurostar dealt with the attack

Eurostar identified indicators of the breach on October 30th and commenced an investigation. After discovering that the data breach occurred between October 15-19, Eurostar emailed all users whose accounts were accessed during that time and asked them to keep an eye out for any unusual activity. Following the GDPR's requirements, Eurostar reported the attack to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). The ICO has yet to confirm whether any data was stolen in the attack.

Eurostar is the latest victim in a string of cybersecurity attacks that have been plaguing the transport industry in recent months. British Airways, Air Canada, and Cathay Pacific were all recently affected by data breaches.
