If you've ever booked tickets online to visit the Pacific Aviation Museum, then be warned that your personal information might have been exposed to hackers.
The Pearl Harbor attraction uses Vendini Incorporated for online ticketing. It services organizations across the U.S. and Canada. Vendini says its databases might have been hacked in late March, exposing personal data, such as credit card information.
The museum sent a letter to about 700 people who bought tickets or made donations online. It reads, "Vendini continues to work with law enforcement to identify the culprits and block any use of the data." Vendini also e-mailed customers with recommendations on how to protect their personal information.
Recently, the museum celebrated its one-millionth visitor. While it has gotten off to a slow start in 2006, today it has added aircrafts and exhibits occupying two WWII hangars. The nonprofit is also known for hosting huge events that bring together old-timers and new. "Wine Under the Wings" has been a very popular one over the years.
