14 Trump Properties Breached by Hackers
Guests at 14 properties bearing the name of Trump might have their credit card information breached by hackers.
Guests of 14 Trump properties, including hotels in Washington, New York and Vancouver, have had their credit card information exposed, marking the third time in as many years that a months-long security breach has affected customers of the luxury hotel chain.
The latest instance occurred between August 2016 and March 2017, according to a notice on the company’s website. Guest names, addresses and phone numbers, as well as credit card numbers and expiration dates were exposed in the hack that lasted over six months.
The breach seems to have taken place on the systems of Sabre Hospitality Solutions, a reservation booking service used by Trump hotels, but did not compromise Trump Hotels’ systems.
“The privacy and protection of our guests’ information is a matter we take very seriously,” the notice said, adding that Trump Hotels was notified of the breach on June 5.
The news of the latest cybersecurity attack comes less than a year after Trump International Hotels Management paid $50,000 in penalties to New York state for failing to notify customers immediately after earlier data breaches led to the exposure of more than 70,000 credit card numbers and 300 Social Security numbers.
