Cyber attack forces airline to cancel flights in Alaska

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) –
RavnAir says it will operate a normal afternoon schedule on Saturday after the company canceled about a half-dozen morning flights in Alaska following what it described as “a malicious cyber attack” on its computer network. A RavnAir spokeswoman says the cancellations affected around 260 passengers. RavnAir says it canceled all flights involving its Dash 8 aircraft until noon because the cyber attack forced the company to disconnect the Dash 8 maintenance system and its back-up. PenAir flights and RavnAir Connect flights were still operating normally on back-up systems. The company is working with the FBI, other authorities, and a cyber security company, to restore systems
