Which? response as hackers access guests’ data in attack on cruise operator Carnival

Kate Bevan, Which? Computing editor, said:

“Carnival customers will be alarmed that their data could have fallen into the hands of hackers who might try to exploit it, so it is vital that the company is now transparent and upfront with potential victims and supports them in taking measures to protect themselves

“For anyone concerned they could be affected, it’s important to change any passwords you think might have been compromised – and keep a careful eye on bank accounts and credit reports. Also, be wary of emails or fake ‘customer support’ popping up on social media regarding the breach, as scammers may try to take advantage of it.”
