UK-based railway company, Eurostar has send a strong warning to its customers to their reset passwords after suffering from cyber attack.
The breach into its systems to access user accounts occurred between October 15 and 19, 2018, and was detected by the company. The company immediately notified the customers stating that it had identified multiple attempts to access eurostar.com accounts using users’ email addresses and passwords and instructed customers to immediately reset their login credentials and passwords.
According to reports, initially the customer didn’t know what had happened but in response to a query on Twitter, Eurostar simply said maintenance was the reason for resetting passwords.
The high speed Channel Tunnel rail service in a tweet sighted by Smartarenapost.com said it had notified those whose accounts had been targeted.
@Eurostar every time when I try to log into my account, it says “your account has been blocked, please use the ‘Forgotten your password?’ Link below to reset your account”…. why does this happen?
