The Trump, Four Seasons, Loews and Hard Rock hotel chains notified customer due to massive breach of Sabre’s SynXis reservations system. Earlier, Google also notified its employees that their personal information may have been breached due to same reservations system.

Trump Hotel

“This incident occurred on the systems of Sabre Hospitality Solutions, a service provider used by Trump Hotels,” the company noted. “It did not affect Trump Hotels’ systems.”

As per the Sabre’s investigation, the hacking was done on Trump Hotels reservation data. Affected information included cardholder names, payment card numbers, card expiration dates and some security codes, as well as some guest names, email addresses, phone numbers and mailing addresses.

Affected Trump properties includes: Trump Central Park, Trump Chicago, Trump Doonbeg, Trump Doral, Trump Las Vegas, Trump Panama, Trump Soho, Trump Toronto, Trump Turnberry, Trump Vancouver, Trump Waikiki, Trump DC, Trump Rio De Janeiro, and Albermarle Estate.

Four Seasons

Sabre’s investigation also determined that Four Seasons payment card and other reservation information was accessed.

”It is important to note that reservations made on Fourseasons.com, with Four Seasons Worldwide Reservations Office, or made directly with any of Four Seasons 10 hotels or resorts were not compromised by this incident,” the company mentioned.

Hard Rock Hotels

Affected Hard Rock properties includes: the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi, Hard Rock Hotel Cancun, Hard Rock Hotel Chicago, Hard Rock Hotel Goa, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs, Hard Rock Hotel Panama Megapolis, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana, Hard Rock Hotel Rivera Maya, Hard Rock Hotel San Diego and Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta.

Loews Hotels

“Following an investigation, Sabre notified us on June 6, 2017 that an unauthorized party gained access to account credentials that permitted access to payment card data and certain reservation information for some Loews Hotels’ hotel reservations processed through Sabre’s CRS,” the Loews Hotels said.

“Every organization entrusted with PII — both the direct-to-consumer providers such as the hospitality chains and the third parties such as Sabre — should constantly be testing and hardening their defenses, and embracing more proactive and effective levels of security such as consumer behavior analytics solutions to help prevent identity thefts,” Lisa Baergen, director of marketing at NuData Security.

“As cybercriminals continue to evolve their methods and capabilities, the challenge facing cyber security professionals will only grow,” Guidance Software president and CEO Patrick Dennis said in a statement. “We see this reflected in the data on the frequency of attacks, costs of a breach and more. Enterprises are beginning to realize that compromise is inevitable, so they need to ensure that they have a complete strategy that includes costs for prevention and deep detection and response tools.”RiskVision CEO Joe Fantuzzi said.
