Bourse des Vols – 1,460,130 breached accounts
In January 2021, the French travel company Bourse des Vols suffered a data breach that exposed 1.46M unique email addresses across more than 1.2k .sql files and over 9GB of data. The impacted data exposed personal information and travel histories including names, phone numbers, IP and physical addresses, dates of birth with flights taken, and purchases.
If you have an account with Bourse des Vols please do the following:
- Change your password and make sure your new password is at least ten characters long and contains an upper case, lower case, number, and a symbol. You can even use a modified phrase or a line from a song if that helps you remember
- Make sure you do not use the same password twice as this leaves you vulnerable to credential stuffing.
- Find a good password manager tool to help you remember all of your passwords. Some of our users say that 1Password is a good tool.
- Check out Incognito’s Email Hack Check tool. All you have to do is enter your email address and we will tell you instantly if it has been involved in one of the many data breaches that happen every day.
Please let me know if you need any help in relation to this.
All the best,
