Hyatt is one of the largest hotel chains and has more than 600 properties all over the world where guests can stay. They are represented in more than 50 countries around the world. A few days ago, the company announced that they had discovered malware on the computers that take care of the payments for Hyatt properties. The statement was not very specific, and didn’t say how many hotels were affected, and what type of information was released, if anything. Hyatt isn’t the only hotel to be hit with a hack in recent months.
Hilton Hotels reported a security breach earlier this year that took place over a few months and only affected the credit card information collected at gift shops and restaurants in some Hilton Hotels. Just over a month ago, Starwood Hotels had their payment systems hacked as well, with a similar malware that appears to be created to collect credit card information. Other brands who have suffered from similar attacks in the past year include the Trump Hotel Collection, Mandarin Oriental and even a smaller hotel management company called White Lodging Services.
