Hyatt Hotels Hacked, Customer Data May Be Compromised

Hyatt hotel

Hyatt announced Wednesday that it has found malware in its payments systems.

According to the announcement, it is unclear if the malware was able to take credit card information from customers. It’s also unclear how many customers are affected.

However, Hyatt is warning its customers to keep an eye on their credit card statements for unauthorized charges.

Hyatt says it’s still investigating the issue and will provide updates on this site.

Here’s the full statement from Hyatt:

Hyatt Hotels Corporation today announced that it recently identified malware on computers that operate the payment processing systems for Hyatt-managed locations. As soon as Hyatt discovered the activity, the company launched an investigation and engaged leading third-party cyber security experts.

The investigation is ongoing, and updates will be posted to http://www.hyatt.com/protectingourcustomers. Hyatt has taken steps to strengthen the security of its systems, and customers can feel confident using payment cards at Hyatt hotels worldwide.

As always, customers should review their payment card account statements closely and report any unauthorized charges to their card issuer immediately. Payment card rules generally provide that cardholders are not responsible for unauthorized charges that are timely reported.

Customers with questions may visit http://www.hyatt.com/protectingourcustomers or call FREE1-877-218-3036 (U.S. and Canada) or FREE +1-814-201-3665 (International) from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST.

Hyatt joins a crowded list of other hotel chains similarly breached in the past year, including Hilton, Starwood, Mandarin Oriental, White Lodging and the Trump Collection.
