Eurostar, a public transportation service based in London that runs railways all through Eastern Europe, recently detected an attempt to gain access to their customers’ information. They have not admitted if the attempt was effective or not but, in an effort to prevent further access, they have reset users’ passwords. Initially Eurostar told their customers the website was under maintenance when they asked why they were unable to login. Officials say the breach was attempted between October 15th and 19th and had a miniscule amount of IP addresses, but it is unknown if their place of operation has been traced. Due to the enactment of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), corporations must let their customers and employees in the EU know of data breaches within 72 hours or they are fined. This attempt raises concern as to if it could be connected to the three airlines that have been attacked in previous weeks.
