Amtrak Breach Rolls Over Frequent Travelers

The breach exposed usernames and passwords of an undisclosed number of program members.

Amtrak has disclosed a breach in its frequent-passenger program that has exposed personally identifiable information of an undisclosed number of participants. The disclosure of the April 16 breach came as part of a regulatory filing with the Office of the Vermont Attorney General on May 29.

Amtrak changed the passwords of all affected customers and has offered a year of Experian IdentityWorks identity theft monitoring to those individuals.
