International hotel group Wyndham Hotels and Resorts (WHR) has suffered yet
another serious data breach after hackers broke into its computer systems,
stealing customer names and payment card information.
According to an open letter posted on the firm’s site, the luxury hotel group
discovered the attack, which targeted one of its data centres, in late January.
“By going through the centralised network connections, the hacker was then
able to access and download information from several, but not all, of the WHR
hotels and remove payment card information of a small percentage of our WHR
customers,” read the letter.
