SpiceJet has suffered a ransomware attack causing long delays and boarding issues.
The controversy started after a Spicejet passenger, tweeted that he was on an aircraft that had failed to take off even after 80 minutes of the boarding formalities having been completed.
Spicejet replied to the tweet that its Wednesday morning flights had been affected due to a ransomware attack the previous night. Similar complaints flooded SpiceJet’s wall on Twitter on Wednesday.
There were some SpiceJet flights which where cancelled due to this same ransomware attack. SpiceJet customer care numbers and website were down as the aftermath of the attack.
