Allied Pilots Association Suffers Cybersecurity Incident

The Allied Pilots Association (APA), the union representing over 15,000 American Airlines pilots, has been the target of a cyberattack that may have compromised the personal and private data of some of its members. The attack, discovered on October 30, disrupted access to the union’s website and personal member pages, as well as its email server.

The APA is currently working with its own IT team and external cybersecurity experts to determine the full extent of the incident and the nature of the data potentially compromised. The union has emphasized that the restoration of affected systems is a meticulous and time-consuming process.

This incident follows recent cyberattacks targeting Caesars Palace and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, where the personal data of some guests was stolen. The APA has stressed that its attack is separate from the incidents involving American Airlines and that there is no indication that the airline itself was compromised.

The APA has assured its members that it is taking all necessary steps to protect their information and restore its systems as quickly as possible. The union has also advised its members to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity to the appropriate authorities.
