Mind your boarding pass

AusCERT has verified that personal identifying information (PII) is retrievable
from the barcode of a boarding pass, as reported by Brian Krebs in
http://krebsonsecurity.com/2015/10/whats-in-a-boarding-pass-barcode-a-lot/
 
From a boarding pass from an Australian airline, we were able to obtain
the flyer's name, booking number, flight number, ports of origin &
destination and frequent flyer number. This practical exercise proves
that valuable information is available to someone in possession of a
boarding pass. So, when leaving your next flight, take your boarding
pass with you - don't leave it behind for someone else to peruse.
