Description

United Continental Holdings Inc has awarded millions of frequent flier miles to hackers who have uncovered gaps in the carrier's web security, in a first for the U.S. airline industry. Trade group Airlines for America said in a statement that all U.S. carriers conduct tests to make sure their systems are secure. Jordan Wiens, a researcher focused on cyber vulnerabilities, tweeted last week that he received United's top reward of 1 million miles for exposing a flaw that could have allowed hackers to seize control of one of the airline's websites.
