How was the discovery made about the British airways data leak widening?

The discovery that the British airways data leak was wider than first thought came during the primary investigations into the first leak that was announced.

Owners of British Airways, IAG, discovered that more data had been leaked than first thought.

In a notification email issued to victims, they said:

“(following further investigations) I am writing to let you know that you may have been affected by the data theft, when you made a reward booking between 21 April and 28 July 2018.

While we do not have conclusive evidence that the data was removed from British Airways’ systems, it is possible your personal data may have been compromised. This includes your full name, billing address, email address and payment card number, expiry date and CVV. As a precaution we recommend you contact your bank or card provider and follow their advice.

We are very sorry that this criminal activity has occurred. We’ll reimburse our customers who have suffered financial losses as a direct result of the theft of their payment card details.”
