The hacker group Ragnar Locker published last night (12 September), data related to 115,000 TAP customers. The hackers released information such as names, nationalities, addresses, telephone contacts and dates of birth of passengers that appear in the air carrier's database, according to Expresso.

"Although it was possible to contain the intrusion at an early stage, the attackers were able to obtain limited information, in particular certain personal data of some of our customers", TAP confirmed to the newspaper.

Público reported that of the 115,000 customers affected, 19 are part of national government organisations, most of which concern the regional governments of the Azores and Madeira.
