United Airlines is changing the keypad codes used to open cockpit doors after they were accidentally posted on a public website. An airline spokeswoman said the breach wasn’t the result of a hack. "We are working to change the codes on all of our aircraft," United Airlines spokeswoman Maddie King said Monday, according to AP. King confirmed that the breach was not the result of a hack attack and did not cause any flights to be delayed or canceled. The Wall Street Journal reported the breach was caused by a United Airlines flight attendant posting information online which included cockpit security codes over the weekend, leading to security concerns. Cockpit doors were reinforced and security measures enhanced after the 9-11 hijackings, which occurred when terrorists took control of four planes owned by United and American Airlines leading the deaths of nearly 3,000 people, and injuring 6,000 others. The Chicago-based airliner said they had a sent a memo to pilots about alternative security measures over the weekend, including visually confirming someone’s identity before they are allowed onto the flight deck. The airline changes access codes periodically but scrambled to change them immediately over the weekend after it learned of the breach. The Air Line Pilots Association on Sunday said the problem had been fixed. Airlines have procedures for opening the cockpit door, such as when a pilot needs to use a restroom in the main cabin. Flight attendants will often use a beverage cart to block the aisle until the door can be closed. The union has lobbied for legislation in Congress that would require the lightweight screen barriers, which it says would cost $5,000 per plane and slow down would-be hijackers long enough for air marshals or other passengers to stop them. United installed the screens on some planes after 9-11 but removed them in 2012 to reduce costs, according to the union. The 2015 Germanwings crash, in which a plane was deliberately flown into a mountain by a pilot who had locked his co-pilot out of the flight deck, highlighted the potential drawbacks of impenetrable cockpit doors if additional safety procedures........: America United Airlines changes cockpit codes after exposure on public website Published: 15 May 2017| 22:04 GMT W UN ITED UNITED United Airlines is changing the keypad codes used to open cockpit doors after they were accidentally posted on a public website.

One particular car has set the Chicago, Illinois record for most parking violations and fines. The city claims Jennifer Fitzgerald owes $105,761.80 for the debt Chicago officials say the 31 year old, single mother of one owes for parking violations issued to a 1999 Chevy Monte Carlo registered in her name. Fitzgerald claims she did not own, drive or park the car where Chicago's Department of Finance (DOF) says it racked up 678 bright orange parking tickets over a period of nearly three years. Based on DOF records, the car in question seems to have set a record in Chicago for having received the highest number of parking tickets as well as accruing the largest fine amounts ever, beating Chicago's number two ranked parking ticket scofflaw by $65,000 and over 400 violations. Fitzgerald is fighting back against the city, her ex-boyfriend and United Airlines with a lawsuit filed November 2 in Cook County Circuit Court. According to the complaint, the somewhat confusing story starts when her former boyfriend Brandon Preveau, bought a 1999 Chevy Monte Carlo from Fitzgerald's uncle for $600 in 2008. Despite paying all the fees associated with owning a vehicle (registration, title and insurance) he put the vehicle's registration in Fitzgerald's name - something the West Side Chicago resident claims was done without her knowledge. Despite having had a baby together, the couple broke up at the start of 2009. Preveau took the car with him after their split. He used the Monte Carlo to drive to work at O'Hare Airport where he was employed by United Airlines. Preveau would leave the vehicle in O'Hare parking lot E, a secured outdoor lot surrounded by high chain link fencing, that is open to the flying public but also utilized by airport employees. The parking lot is owned by the city of Chicago and operated by Standard Parking Corporation, but according to the complaint, United Airlines leases spaces in the lot for use by airline employees.
