JAKARTA - Malindo Air, a subsidiary of Indonesia's Lion Group, has called in cyber detectives to uncover those responsible for a data breach involving the personal details of its passengers.

Details of around 30 million passengers of Malindo and fellow Lion Group subsidiary Thai Lion Air were posted in online forums. Leaked information included passengers' passport details, addresses and phone numbers.

However, Malindo Air has assured its customers that no financially sensitive information was exposed during the data breach. The airline has urged registered users to change their passwords as a precaution.
