British Airways data breach settlement could lead to £2.4bn pay-out

British Airways data breach claims

As pressure mounts on the airline, a British Airways data breach settlement is on the cards as the legal representatives of BA alert the court of their intentions to engage in negotiations.

The breaking news of this development comes from leading consumer action and data breach firm Your Lawyers, with wide coverage so far with major media outlets including The Sun and The Mirror. Your Lawyers, who sit on the Steering Committee responsible for the overall conduct of the litigation, declare that this is a massive step forward. This could signal the start of the end of the action that is now entering its third year, and it could represent an incredibly significant compensation pay-out bill that could reach up to £2.4 billion to be shared between over 400,000 victims if all initiate a claim.

The announcement signifies what we always believed should have been on the horizon. A settlement could effectively draw a line under the serious 2018 data breach that shocked the world. We urge victims who have yet to claim to come forward to start their case before the deadline to claim expires soon.

Boots Advantage Card and Tesco Clubcard customers targeted by hackers

We’re only in March, and we’ve already seen LOQBOX hacked, MGM breached, and Travelex held to ransom this year. Now, Boots Advantage Card and Tesco Clubcard customers have been targeted by hackers too.

Warnings have been issued by both retailers, and Boots has suspended people being able to use loyalty points for payments. Around 600,000 Tesco Clubcard customers are thought to have been targeted, and it may be the same hackers behind the attacks.

It’s important to point out that neither Boots nor Tesco’s systems have been compromised, according to their communication. This appears to be a case of hackers using information stolen from separate hacks to then try and break into Boots and Tesco customer accounts. This is precisely why we point out that even small attacks can lead to wider problems, and why people should never use the same login credentials across multiple platforms.
