The report said that a security researcher, who described their actions as 'ethical hacking', "gained access to one of SpiceJet’s systems by brute-forcing the system’s easily guessable password".
An unencrypted database backup file on that system had private information of more than 1.2 million passengers of the airline last month, the report added.
According to the report, each record included details such as the name of the passenger, phone number, email address and date of birth.
