    Default 9 million Easyjet customer details hacked

    I know this is a Contractor forum, so most of you won't be affected.

    Sadly I might be, we have used them a couple of times in the last 2 or 3 years.

    Love this bit "EasyJet has revealed that the personal details of nine million customers have been accessed by "highly sophisticated" hackers." Yeah - never "accessed by a bunch of script kiddies, as we've employed numpties to do our IT".

    I use whatever airline has flights to the right place at the time I want. I've often flown with EasyJet and if the flight isn't cancelled , it's always been fine.

    No problems with them either and I very rarely pick a destination or a time based on the carrier unless the flexibility makes no difference to my trip.

    I have to say if I can chose though, I'll avoid Ryanair if at all possible. Their rules aren't that much different from other low budget airlines but I can definitely say I've seen a lot more hassle on Ryanair flights over baggage and the like than I have on all the others put together. Maybe they just police it a little more aggressively or something but it's just left a bad taste when it comes to them.

    Can’t protect this data from state actors - only way is to minimise collection and purge after the flights - but of course Govt requires retention for a long time.

    I am sure my details are on there.

    If the ICO decide to fine them based on turnover at the moment this is likely to be a very small fine!

    I guess you'll be able to find out if you've been had on the Have I been Pwned website soon.

    The easyjet one is small potatoes compared to some of the biggest one's they've found.

    My details are probably on that list.
    I used to use them for flights to eastern European hotspots where my clients were hothousing teams of dev's and where BA were simply uneconomic or just didn't bother flying to.
    Remember in terms of punctuality they are better than BA!

    Nothing wrong with using easyjet. A lot of destinations only have easy jet and to be honest their seats are more comfortable than a lot of the “premium” airlines.
