A data protection breach at travel company Thomson has exposed personal details of many passengers. The home addresses, telephone numbers, and flight dates were revealed for nearly 500 travelers in the UK.

Thomson has experienced a data breach that has exposed hundreds of customer's details, prompting the requirement for Host Intrusion and Breach Detection.

An email cited by the BBC shows that the details of 458 people were shared on 15 August. Some of those affected have shown anger at the company's handling of this incident. Thomson has apologized for the episode and called it a “genuine error”, however, it advised customers that they would not receive any compensation.

A statement from Thomson said, “We are aware of an email that was sent in error, which shared a small number of customers' information. The error was identified very quickly and the email was recalled, which was successful in a significant number of cases. We are urgently investigating the matter to ensure this situation will not be repeated.”
