Thanks for sharing. Hoping the Carnival Corp. let's the customers of said line know. Not happy about this news.

Thanks Sarah. Great article. Not surprising and probably a good wake up call for the industry. They have been put on notice that they are a prime target and considering the money that passes through their fingers each year they really need to be vigilant. The ransomware attach is one thing but the data breach where personal data was exposed or accessed is the critical issue and this would be another legal window which has been opened. Interesting that Carnival does not think that this will have a large impact on them. I beg to differ. There is potential for some additional class action law suites on this especially if they did not do their proper due diligence.

After the last "breach/hack" we froze ALL THREE CB's. That was a few years now, and we haven't missed a beat. No reason to unfreeze them ever. Mebbe because of the stage of life we're in...and the credit lines we already have. And some folks laff at the layers of cyber security we have on this toy. Until it happens to you. which is why links in here from "whoever" aren't to be trusted.

Corporations have battalions of lawyers to "protect" them....from us.....

The bigger issue is the info will be sold to the dark web. If you have a Carnival account, change your credentials right away, make sure to change the password to something completely different than any of your other passwords, and do the same for all of your other accounts that can be tied to that account and/or have similar passwords.
