DAA can confirm that as a result of a recent cyber-attack on Aon, a third-party professional service provider, data relating to some employees’ pay and benefits was compromised
The financial data of some of the Dublin airport’s staff has been compromised by a cyberattack on the provider company, Aon. The cyberattack provider also affected various other firms, the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) said on Sunday.
“DAA can confirm that as a result of a recent cyber-attack on Aon, a third-party professional service provider, data relating to some employees’ pay and benefits was compromised,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
Nearly 2,000 Dublin airport staff, as well as other agencies and companies in the US and UK, were affected by the attack on the file-transfer software tool MOVEit used by Aon.
The cl0p ransomware gang has claimed to be behind the hacking of MOVEit.
“DAA is offering support, advice, and assistance to employees impacted by this criminal cyber-attack,” the Irish airport authority said, without giving further details.
