About 1,400 passengers of the Polish airline LOT were grounded at Warsaw’s Chopin airport Sunday after hackers attacked the ground computer systems used to issue flight plans, the company said.
The computer system was hacked in the afternoon and fixed after about five hours, during which 10 of the state-owned carrier’s national and international flights were canceled and about a dozen more were delayed, spokesman Adrian Kubicki said.
LOT was taking care of the passengers Sunday evening, and some were already able to board flights. LOT said it was providing hotels for those who needed to stay overnight.
