The plane manufacturer instructed its employees to “take all necessary precautions going forward,” but moved to reassure the public that its commercial activities have not been impacted.

Airbus is taking “immediate and appropriate actions to reinforce existing security measures,” which weren’t sufficient to keep the hackers out this time around, “and to mitigate its potential impact.”
