Photos of tourists entering US stolen in cyber attack, border agency says

Photos of holidaymakers visiting the US have been stolen in a cyber attack, the American border force has said. US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said that photos of travellers to the country had been “compromised by a malicious cyber attack”.

The agency stores images of visitors taken as they enter and exit the US for anti-terrorism and law enforcement, and uses photos for facial recognition at American airports.

Falanx Group Ltd (LON:FLX), through its subsidiaries, provides cyber defence and intelligence services to blue chip and government clients worldwide. It operates through Falanx Cyber Defence and Falanx Intelligence divisions.
