Air Canada App Pwned…..20,000 People Affected

Apparently users of the Air Canada mobile app may have something to worry about as about 20,000 users of said app may have been affected by a data breach that happened between Aug. 22‑24, 2018. MobileSyrup received an email about this breach from Air Canada and CBC News is reporting the same thing. But there has been no comment directly from the company on this as of yet. As a precaution, users of the Air Canada app should change their passwords ASAP. Though according to CBC News, that might be a problem at present.

Hopefully the airline releases some sort of statement to shed further light on this incident.

UPDATE: Air Canada has now confirmed the data breach. The FAQ that I linked to is very much worth reading if you use the Air Canada app.
