Hackers Attacked Trump Hotels

According to the company's announcement, the cyber attack has hit the Saber Hospitality Solutions system, which is used by Trump Hotels, Nova TV reported.

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.

Personal data taken from the credit cards include full name, card number and expiration date.

It says that in some cases, the breach also included guest name, email, phone number, address, and other information but not social security number, passport and driver's licence number.

Customers of the Trump Hotel chain may soon be seeing orange, as news broke Tuesday that the chain owned by the president has been hacked, complete with credit card numbers and personal details getting stolen.

Trump hotel properties were first breached in May 2014, when hackers installed malicious software on the hotel's networks to scoop up credit card information from guests, an investigation conducted by the attorney general of NY discovered. Sabre Corp. only informed the chain of the hack June 5.

This isn't the first time Trump Hotels' guests have been hit by a months-long data breach.

On Possible Surprise Visit From Trump, UK Resistance Says: We'll Be Ready
Anti-Trump campaigners are calling on The President's opponents to be "on standby " for street protests in the event of a visit. The White House later denied that the two leaders had even discussed the subject.

Trump Hotels did not mention in its notice how many guests were affected in the cybersecurity attack. After all, hotel guests can't do much to protect themselves from a data breach at an institutional level.

The attack comes less than a year after Trump International Hotels Management paid $50,000 in penalties to ny state for failing to notify customers immediately of an earlier data breach.

Earlier this year, the InterContinental Hotel Group said guests' credit card data had been compromised at more than 1,200 of its properties, including Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza hotels, over a three month period.

Trump Hotels could not be immediately reached for comment. Hard Rock Hotels last week admitted that its customers were also involved, and Loews Hotels has reportedly been sending its customers breach notifications.

ProPublica and Gizmodo found that a number of Trump properties, including the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida - where the president regularly spends his weekends, and he has hosted foreign heads of state - had less-than-secure wireless networks.
