United Airlines Says Some Cockpit Access Info Made Public

The cockpit door password access was compromised on some United Airlines flights.

United Airlines announced that its cockpit door access information may have been made public, but said it has other procedures in place to secure flight decks. "Remember this information is sensitive security information and sharing this with anyone not authorized or who does not have a need to know is strictly prohibited". The company, which owns United Airlines and United Express, asked pilots to follow security procedures already in use, including visually confirming someone's identity before they are allowed onto the flight deck even if they enter the correct security code into the cockpit door's keypad.

Industry union the Air Line Pilots Association is said to have confirmed that the issue has now been resolved, which presumably involved resetting the cockpit door codes on all aircraft.

A spokeswoman for the embattled airline ruled out a data breach but would not elaborate how the information was made public, refusing to explain its security procedures. Authorities said at the time the suicidal co-pilot locked out the captain when he left the cockpit momentarily.
