The hack of British Airways’s website that compromised personal and financial details of hundreds of thousands of customers hasn’t resulted in any cases of fraud thus far, Chief Executive Officer Alex Cruz said in an interview.

“As of 10 minutes ago, we don’t have any verified cases of fraud in any of the cases we have inspected,” Cruz said by phone at 2 p.m. in London. An internal team is working with police to investigate what the CEO has described as a sophisticated, malicious and criminal attack. Cruz said he was as yet unable to comment on the origin of the attack.
