The financial information of some Dublin airport employees has been compromised by a cyber attack on provider company Aon that also affected several other companies, the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) said on Sunday.
“DAA can confirm that as a result of a recent cyberattack against Aon, a third-party professional services firm, data related to the wages and benefits of some employees has been compromised,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
The UK Sunday Times reported that the attack on the file transfer software tool MOVEit used by Aon affected nearly 2,000 Dublin airport employees, as well as other agencies and companies in the US and UK.
The cl0p ransomware gang has claimed to be behind MOVEit hacking.
AON did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“DAA is providing support, advice and assistance to employees affected by this criminal cyber-attack,” the Irish airport authority said without providing further details.
