Flying Blue Hacked, Some Personal Data Exposed

Flying Blue, the frequent flyer program used by KLM and Air France, has been hacked. The extension of how much data has been exposed is not fully clear. Hackers may have gained access to information such as names, account numbers, phone and email addresses, as well as account activity.

“Our security operations teams have detected suspicious behavior by an unauthorized entity in relation to your account”, Flying Blue said in an email sent to some members. “We have immediately implemented corrective action to prevent further exposure of your data.”

Flying Blue doesn’t say how many members have been affected by this hack, but assures that credit card and payment information was not exposed.

Here’s the information that hackers might have accessed:

  • Your first and/or last name
  • Your Flying Blue number and level
  • Miles balance
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Latest transactions

The notification was sent from flyingblue-info.com which makes it look like a phishing email. But it’s legit.

As an additional security measure, some accounts have been locked, so you might need to change your password in order to regain access. If your account is locked, just select “Forgot Password” on the log in page in order to create a new password.
