#infosec | Norwegian Cruise Line Suffers Data Breach

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A major cruise operator has suffered a data breach as the travel industry battles the storm created by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Information from a database belonging to Norwegian Cruise Line was discovered on the dark web by an intelligence team at DynaRisk on March 13. 

Data exposed in the incident included clear text passwords and email addresses used to log in to the Norwegian Cruise Line travel agent portal by agents working for companies including Virgin Holidays and TUI. 

DynaRisk said data relating to 29,969 travel agents was breached from the portal on the agents.ncl.eu website on March 12.

“After verifying that the data records are legitimate credentials, we notified a Norwegian Cruise Line representative immediately. Despite opening our message later that day, we received no response. After five days a representative responded to our team to discuss the breach,” said a DynaRisk spokesperson.

DynaRisk said that the incident left agents who were “already vulnerable at this time” at higher risk of cybercrime. 

A DynaRisk spokesperson said: “They are now exposed to account takeovers on numerous platforms, sophisticated phishing emails and fraud, which could put further pressure on large travel agents or worse still, put smaller agents out of business.”

Norwegian Cruise Lines told Infosecurity Magazine: “It has recently come to our attention that the agents.ncl.eu website may have been compromised. In an abundance of caution, we are in the process of asking certain travel partners that may have been affected to change their password for the site and any site for which they may have used the same password, and to remain vigilant of any suspicious activity or emails. 

“We believe limited personal information was involved, specifically names of travel agencies and business contact information such as business addresses and email. This appears to be a unique and isolated incident that involved only a regional travel partner portal which houses marketing materials and educational information and did not involve guest data. We are deeply committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of information and regret any concern this matter may have caused.” 

Norwegian is the third cruise line this month to hit the cybersecurity headlines. Princess Cruises and Holland America Line both reported being hacked on March 2.

Scammers trying to steal credit card data from veterans dialing a fake Choice Program phone line

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is warning veterans of a scam involving a fake Choice Program phone line. The two phone numbers differ only in the area code. The VA reports the fake line does not provide information on the Choice Program or its eligibility criteria, instead it offers callers a $100 rebate if they provide a credit card …

The Bottom Line: ‘Goodnight, You Beautiful Women’ By Anna Noyes

Energized by the stillness of domesticity, a man begins to throw his belongings into the quarry behind his home: knives and fragile china, cast away and sinking. When his wife wakes up to find a dusty absence where their refrigerator once was, she knows to worry. Soon after, he throws himself into the quarry, too. 

It’s an odd scene that could be thought of as parabolic, until in breaches into cloudy, incomprehensible territory. Like the man’s grieving wife, we’re left in a haze of earthy images.

“Hibernation,” the first story in Anna Noyes’ biting collection Goodnight, Beautiful Women isn’t about the man’s illness, but his wife’s response to it.

Rethinking zip line safety after the death of a child

ZIPLINE1NE070115CELAs co-owner with her husband of a busy canopy tour in the Stokes County treetops, Barbara Bollman believes zip lines are safe when properly built and operated. But as a mother of 11 children and grandmother to 19, her first thought on hearing about the zip line accident that killed a 12-year-old girl at a North Carolina summer camp last month was, “That’s it. We’re shutting down.”

The Bollmans didn’t close Carolina Ziplines Canopy Tour, which has never had a serious accident, and customers, including families and kids from area summer camps, continue to pour in Tuesdays through Sundays, slip into harnesses, helmets and safety gloves and get a taste of flight.
