DUBLIN: The pay and benefits details of nearly 2,000 staff members of DAA, which operates Ireland’s Dublin airport, were compromised due to a recent cyber attack on professional service provider Aon, the Sunday Times reported.
DAA can confirm that as a result of a recent cyber attack on Aon, a third-party provider, data relating to some employees’ pay and benefits was compromised, the report quoted DAA’s spokesman as saying.
DAA was one of many global companies affected last month by the attack on the file transfer software tool MOVEit, used by Aon, the newspaper added.
DAA and AON did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment outside office hours.
Victims of the cyber attack include US government agencies, the UK’s telecom regulator, and energy major Shell, all of whom have been hit by a security flaw in Progress Software’s MOVEit product discovered in May.
On Friday, chipmaker Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co said that its supplier was as victim of cyber attack.
