polish airline lot hacked

Around 1,400 passengers of the Polish airline LOT were grounded at Warsaw's Chopin airport on Sunday after hackers attacked the airline ground computer systems.

During the attack, the staffs were unable to create flight plans, said LOT spokesman Adrian Kubicki. "This is the first attack of its kind." 

"We're using state-of-the-art computer systems, so this could potentially be a threat to others in the industry," he added.

The attack led to the cancellation of 10 of the state-owned carrier's national and international flights departing from Warsaw. The problem was fixed after around five hours.

Poland's security agencies are investigating the attack.
