Trump Hotels informs customers that hackers tried to breach the systems of Sabre Hospitality Solutions (Sabre) and not its own systems, though it confirms that personal information has been exposed.
The Organization announced on Tuesday that:
Hackers gained access to “cardholder name, payment card number, card expiration date, and potentially card security code” information for guests who stayed at Trump hotels between August 2016 and March 2017.
“Following an investigation, Sabre notified us on June 5, 2017 that an unauthorized party gained access to account credentials that permitted access to payment card data and certain reservation information for some of our hotel reservations processed through Sabre’s CRS.”
According to The Washington Post, “The News of the latest cyber security 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. The company also agreed to update its security practices as a result of the settlement.”
Trump Hotels said that:
“We are working with Sabre to address this issue. We understand that Sabre engaged a leading cyber security firm to support its investigation. Sabre indicated that they also notified law enforcement and the payment card brands about this incident.”
