Bloomberg reports that Chinese-based hackers attacked Sabre, a travel reservation group and American Airlines, though the airline denies the breach.

From Reuters:

Incidents at the travel companies were consistent with incursions by China-based hackers that recently targeted insurer Anthem Inc (ANTM.N) and the U.S. government’s personnel office, Bloomberg reported on Friday, citing people familiar with the investigations.

“We recently learned of a cyber security incident,” Sabre said in an email to Reuters. “At this time, we are not aware that this incident has compromised sensitive protected information, such as credit card data or personally identifiable information, but our investigation is ongoing.”

Sabre, a former American Airlines subsidiary that was spun off in 2000, operates IP addresses still registered to American’s name.
