So if you fly TAP Air, some of your personal data has likely been compromised. Group behind it is Ragnar Locker. This same group recently hacked  the largest natural gas supplier in Greece. The same group infiltrated the colonial pipleline in the Eastern USA in 2021 and took it offline. That is the largest such pipeline in the United States.

Anyhow, the TAP air hack compromised name, date of birth, address, email, passenger number, etc etc etc.

Shockingly, the malware won’t deploy if it detects you are in Russia.

@antonio_f Between TAP, Continente, and Vodafone hacks we are wondering if there are any companies, we deal with left that haven't been hacked.

@jonesdn2020 All the more reason to have strong passwords, change passwords on a regular basis, consider 2FA hardware keys, such as Yubikey, etc.
