(Fargo, ND) --  A 2019 copy of the U.S. government's no-fly list has been obtained by a Swiss hacker.

The list, which contains one-point-five million names and aliases of people forbidden from flying, was taken from an unsecured cloud server used by CommuteAir, a regional airline headquartered in Ohio.

The TSA says the agency is aware of the incident and investigating.

The hacker, who goes by the name "maia arson crimew," was previously indicted on hacking charges in 2021.
