Trump Hotel Collection Confirms the Suffering of Data Breach

Softpedia.com reported on 29th September, 2015 stating that Trump Hotel Collection (THC) is a conglomerate of hotel properties owned by Donald Trump, Presidential candidate of US, in a recent statement on its corporate website, has acknowledged a data breach involving its seven hotels.

Based on the intelligence report from investigators of bank fraud, it was suspected that Trump's hotels in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Honolulu and Miami were breached.

Compromised card data comprises account numbers, CCVs, expiry dates and names of cardholders.

Theregister.co.uk published news on 29th September, 2015 stating that Trump Hotel Collection through its legal advisors Norton Rose Fullbright has alerted in a letter to its clients that malware was detected in its payment card systems operating from 19th May to 2nd June, 2015.

A letter posted on the website of the Office of Attorney General of California written "we are giving notification of a security incident probably affecting certain individuals who purchased using payment card at Trump International Hotel & Tower Las Vegas. Although independent forensic investigator did not find any evidence proving that information was stolen from the Hotel's systems, it seems that there might have been unauthorized malware access to information regarding payment card as it was stored into the payment card machines. As a part of the probe, THC has eradicated the malware and it is in the course of reconfiguring different components of our network and payment systems to further secure our processing systems related to payment card."

Trump Hotels is also offering free credit monitoring in a year to its customers.

It is just the latest disclosure about a breach at a major international hotel chain. Mandarin Oriental, the luxury hotel group, said in March 2015 that it was probing a breach and White Lodging , a chain of franchise hotels, admitted that it was hacked twice during the same year. Last week, fourth week of September 2015, Brian Krebs, Cyber-Security Journalist, reported that registers in gift shops and restaurants at "a large number of Hilton Hotel and franchise properties" throughout the U.S. had been compromised.
