Data on up to 750,000 Japan Airlines mileage club members may have leaked

Kyodo reports:

Japan Airlines Co. said Wednesday that personal information on up to 750,000 JAL mileage club members may have leaked after someone gained unauthorized access to the company’s computer system

The data include members’ names, addresses, birthdays and email addresses, the company said, adding that it has not confirmed the leak of passwords or credit card numbers.

A program to extract customer data and send them to a server in Hong Kong was planted on 23 personal computers at JAL. Seven of the 23 computers are believed to have actually sent data.
