American Airlines, Sabre said to be hit in hacks backed by China.

2015/08/07

Bloomberg - (International) American Airlines Group Inc., is investigating a suspected hack into its system after Sabre Corp., a clearinghouse for travel reservations which shares some network infrastructure with the airline, confirmed a recent breach possibly tied to the same China-linked hackers who targeted United Airlines, major American health insurers, and U.S. Government agencies. Sabre is unsure of the extent of the breach, but warns it may expose millions of flight records, hotel bookings, and car rentals.
