Hackers have stolen data of all members of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives.
ACTE’s executive director Greeley Koch said that there had been a “malicious theft” yesterday (August 11) of members’ names and email address, although no other data such as credit card details or addresses was acquired by the hackers.
Members of the US-based association who receive a “questionable email” from an ACTE email address are being asked to forward it on to email@example.com.
“The authorities have been notified and tighter security measures have been put in place,” added Koch.
“In the past year, major credit card companies, government agencies, and retailers have all been the target of hackers. As such, we are always reviewing our own data security processes.”
ACTE said that it would not ask members for credit card information or password confirmations through email “until further notice”.
“I regret any inconvenience this situation may have caused,” said Koch.
