ALERT Hack attack on LOT Polish’s airline system has grounded 1,400 passengers

About 1,400 passengers using the Polish airline LOT were grounded at Warsaw’s Chopin airport after the airline’s computer system that is used to issue flight plans, was hacked. The operator fears other airlines could also be at risk.

The system was broken into at about 4 pm local time (3pm GMT) and it took specialists around five hours to find a solution to the problem.
The delays meant 10 national and international flights were canceled, while more than a dozen more were behind schedule, Reuters reported, citing LOT spokesman Adrian Kubicki.
