Delta sued over 2017 breach not disclosed to them for six months by third-party vendor
Christina Davis reports on a class action suit filed against Delta Airlines where the main complaint appears to be that customers were first notified of the hack until six months after it occurred.
According to the Delta class action lawsuit, the third party running the online chat room knew of the data breach for six months before it disclosed it to Delta. Delta allegedly learned of the breach on March 28, 2018 and sent affected customers notification that their personal information had been compromised in April. The notification informed affected consumers that the breach started in September and had resolved in October 2017.
