The personal data of approximately 190,000 JAL Mileage Bank customers was accessed by an unauthorized intruder, the company reported earlier this week. Early indications are that their system was compromised by a malware infection–something which has affected many online retailers around the world.

According to JAL’s announcement, there is no indication that passwords and credit card numbers have been stolen and their mileage program continues to remain operational with members reportedly able to redeem their JMB miles for awards as usual.

Though the airline promises to notify customers affected by the breech and says that it has “taking all possible countermeasures”, there has been no word if the airline will compensate or indemnify members for any damages caused by the unauthorized disclosures.
