Nigerian airline, Arik Air has been accused of spurning efforts to notify it of a data leak that involves customers’ personal and payment information.
The leak, which contained sensitive customer details such as device fingerprints, names,
email addresses, last four digits of credit cards, and IP addresses, was discovered on
September 6 by Justin Paine, the head of trust and safety at Cloudflare.

Cloudflare is one of the largest internet security and cloud network platforms in the world.
After concluding the CSV files were very likely owned by Arik Air (or their payment processor)
I immediately attempted to make contact with Arik Air to notify them of this data leak,
Paine said in a blog post he published on Tuesday.
To say this process was challenging would be an understatement.
I can confirm roughly 1 month after notice was provided that action has finally been
taken to secure the S3 bucket.
