In the previous issue, I wrote about the event study and investigation of this cyber-attack at British Airways. Now let’s take a deep dive into the results of this cyber-attack. A ticket master website was being used in this process of malfunctioning. A digital skimmer was placed in the ticker master secretly. This Magecart was used to transform more than hundreds and thousands of records. There were no hits in the case of British Airways blacklist. The skimmer was completely customized, thus there no suspicion at all. The baggage claim information page was used for loading all the data.
