Poulomi Saha reports:

A massive breach in Air India’s server this February led to compromising personal data of nearly 45,00,000 [4.5 million] people worldwide. The leaked data was collected between August 26, 2011 and February 3, 2021.

This included people’s personal details like name, date of birth, contact information, passport information, ticket details, credit card data, among others.

The massive data leak was caused by a “sophisticated cyberattack” on Air India’s passenger service system provider SITA.
