Eurostar forced all of its customers to reset their passwords after indications of a possible security breach by hackers attempted to access user accounts. In an email, customers were notified that a threat actor may have used automated attempts to login with stolen user email and passwords that were obtained in an unknown method. The email also stated, “We’ve since carried out an investigation which shows that your account was logged into between the 15 and 19 October, If you didn’t log in during this period, there’s a possibility your account was accessed by this unauthorized attempt.”
The email instructed customers to reset their passwords and check their accounts for unusual activity while ensuring them their payment card information hadn’t been compromised.
