Hackers targeting Thomas Cook customers

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Cybersecurity experts have warned that criminals are targeting Thomas Cook customers and former employees with websites which impersonate legitimate organisations.

The Telegraph reports that website records compiled by cybersecurity firm Skurio show that a flood of websites was created as Thomas Cook slid into administration on September 23.

Scammers seeking to take advantage of people searching the internet for information about the company’s collapse rushed to buy up web domains which can appear to be connected to Thomas Cook.

Thomas Cook was a customer of Skurio, which searches the internet on behalf of its customers for scams or discussions about hacking attempts.

Data provided by Skurio shows at least 50 websites have been created, many of which appear to be designed to trick Thomas Cook customers.

One website titled Thomas Cook Refunds uses the company’s logo in order to appear legitimate and asked customers for their name, email address, booking number and booking value. It claimed to be able to provide a “refund status” for bookings.
