If you stayed, ate or played at a Hyatt hotel between 13th Aug 2015 and 8th Dec 2015 there’s a chance your credit or debit card data was stolen by cyber criminals who hacked many of the hotel chain’s payment systems. Hyatt Hotels says the intrusion affected guests at 250 hotels in roughly 50 countries.
Hyatt have said that the majority of the payment systems compromised by malware were at restaurants within the hotels, and that a small percentage were at spas, golf shops, parking and a limited number of front desks.
Chicago-based Hyatt joins a growing list of hotel chains similarly breached in the past year, including Hilton, Starwood, Mandarin Oriental,White Lodging and the Trump Collection.
For those in the UK, the hotels and dates of note are;
Birmingham Hyatt Regency Birmingham 13/08/2015 – 14/10/2015
London Andaz London Liverpool Street 13/08/2015 – 08/12/2015
