Delta Data Breach April 2018 Disclosure

Delat Airlines has sent out a letter to all of it's members about a March 28, 2018 data breach notification from an online chat service 247.ai that happened last September. Certain customer payment information may have been accessed during this time. It was from Malware that was present in the software.

Delta's response to a 3rd party software provider on their website seems to be very proactive as they engaged with law enforcement and forensic teams as soon as they learned of the breach. They are also offering a free enrollment in AllClear ID Credit monitoring and identity theft protection services free of charge for two years. A big boon and win for All Clear but a big los for 247.AI as this will negatively impact future clients they would of otherwise obtained.

Hat tip to Deborah Wheeler the VP Chief Information Security Officer for a proactive approach to the matter. I have some exciting new software that would of prevented an incident like this from happening that I hope to be rolling out later this year that will greatly benefit companies like Delta.

Article worth reading about Aron D'Souza

In depth article about a hidden figure in the role that brought down a site that many put on par with TheDirty.com as sleezy and was made for the sole purpose to embarass, cyber bully, and to harass people. None the less it was a business that generated thousands of jobs all of which have now been destroyed by Nick Denton.

Ever Wonder Why LBS.

If you're like me and wonder why LBS = Pounds when Kilometers = KM and Kilograms = KG So why isn't Pounds = PD ?

This happens because LB is actually from the Latin word libra as in the astrological sign Libra which means balance or scales. Yes Sclaes as in what we step on to weigh ourselves in pounds or kilograms. An ancient Roman unit of measure Libra Pondo meant "a pound by weight". So the word pound in the English language was derived from the word "Pondo".

Another interesting note is the British Sterling Pound has a symbol of an L with a line through it.

So thats my fun fact and knowledge of the day.
