Mideast Offers New Opportunities for Cyber Criminals

More than a hundred Egyptian nationals gathered in front of a Kuwait airline office requesting a meeting with the manager of the airline and seeking a refund of their money.

Complaints were filed and it is reported that two “hackers” - a Lebanese and an Egyptian - had access to the secret codes of those who had reserved tickets via the internet. These two persons allegedly cancelled the reservations and sold the “victims” tickets to others. The daily did not state whether or not the hackers have been arrested. Source ArabTimes
