Trump hotel in Toronto among 14 Trump properties impacted by data breach

Trump hotel data breach

Hackers reportedly infiltrated the computer systems used by multiple Trump properties in a several-month time span recently, exposing patrons' credit card information.

The luxury hotel chain says it was notified early last month that an unauthorized party had gained access to data for some of its reservations between August 10, 2016 and March 9 of this year.

The properties affected include: Trump Central Park; Trump Chicago; Trump Doonberg; Trump Doral; Trump Las Vegas; Trump Panama; Trump Soho; Trump Toronto; Trump Turnberry; Trump Vancouver; Trump Waikiki; Trump DC; Trump Rio de Janeiro; and Albemarle Estate.

Trump Hotels says that credit card numbers (including expiration dates and security codes) and cardholder names were taken.

The Trump Hotels notification pointed out that Social Security numbers, passports and driver's licenses were "not accessed", so at least you won't have to change your name and flee the country.

Because Sabre SynXis handles reservations for a variety of other hotel chains, Trump's properties are not the only ones affected.

The problem is that, before his 2016 campaign, Trump's children had very little experience in global affairs or domestic politics. But Twitter's having none of it.

The company's service provider, Sabre Hospitality Solutions, notified the hotels about the cybersecurity attack on June 5, Trump Hotels said.

"The privacy and protection of our guests' information is a matter we take very seriously", the Trump organization said in the statement.

Hotel chains have lagged behind many other businesses in protecting their networks, security analysts told the Washington Post.

Singer posited that the Trump hotel chain was more prone to attack than ever before given President Donald Trump's stature on the national stage and the number of influential targets staying at Trump properties, including lawmakers, lobbyists and foreign dignitaries. "This incident occurred on the systems of Sabre Hospitality Solutions (Sabre), a service provider used by Trump Hotels". Hard Rock notified customers on July 6, with Four Seasons and Trump Hotels waiting nearly another week to break the bad news. "Sabre indicated that they also notified law enforcement and the payment card brands about this incident", added the company.

Trump Hotels advises guests to "remain vigilant for incidents of fraud and identity theft by regularly reviewing account statements and monitoring free credit reports for any unauthorized activity".

In May 2014, hackers installed malware created to swipe payment card information in the computer systems of seven Trump Hotels.
