Trump Organization Reveals Another Data Breach

26 July 17

The Trump organization

The organization released a statement on its website that said guests who stayed with the hotels from August 2016 to March 2017 might have had the following information compromised:

  • Cardholder’s name
  • Credit card numbers
  • Expiration date of credit card
  • Possible card security code

There are some cases, according to the organization, where hackers were able to get guest names, phones numbers, addresses, email addresses and other data. The company did note that no passports or social security numbers appeared to be compromised.

The Trump organization said their guests’ privacy is something the company takes quite seriously. The organization urges all guests who stayed at the hotel to look at the information in the statement to protect themselves against possible abuse.

They also said hackers were able to break into Sabre’s SynXis Central Reservations system – the system that Trump hotels use for its unified guest bookings. The actual systems used in Trump hotels was not compromised.

The Trump organization was ordered to pay $50,000 to the state of New York after it didn’t inform customers right away of data breaches that took place in 2015. That breach resulted in the theft of nearly 300 Social Security numbers and 70,000 credit card numbers.
