Chinese Hackers Attack On American Airlines And Sabre Systems.

Hundreds of airlines reservations and thousand of hotels data, which process by Sabre Corp. and American Airlines group Inc the world's biggest air carrier has breached by Chinese-linked Hackers.

American Airlines Spokesperson Casey Norton said the company does not find any evidence yet.

According to report by Reuters,

"We recently learned of a cyber security incident," Sabre said in an email to Reuters. "At this time, we are not aware that this incident has compromised sensitive protected information, such as credit card data or personally identifiable information, but our investigation is ongoing."

"American has worked with outside cyber security experts who checked digital signatures, IP addresses and the style of attack, and there's no evidence to suggest a breach similar to that experienced by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management," Norton said in an email to Reuters.

The China-based hackers reportedly targeted the systems of United Continental Holdings Inc (UAL.N), which the airline detected in May or early June, Bloomberg reported last month.

"Not in light of today, but because of prevalent attacks in the industry, we have redoubled our efforts and brought in more cyber security experts to investigate and defend our systems," Norton said in later phone conversation.
