White Lodging Services, a hotel management company, has revealed a suspected breach of point of sales systems at 10 of its food and beverage outlets.
The breach occurred between 3 July 2014, and 6 February 2015, and the breached data includes names printed on customers’ credit or debit cards, card numbers, their security codes and the cards’ expiration dates.
Among the 10 hotels, eight are from Marriott and one each from Courtyard and Renaissance.
The company said that guests who did not use their credit card at these outlets and who charged to their room account at these outlets were not affected by the breach.
Following the suspected data breach, the company officials contacted appropriate federal law enforcement officials and launched a third-party forensic review
The company is also providing one-year complimentary fraud resolution and identity protection services in connection with the breach.
White Lodging Services added that it will continue to work with investigators and the credit card companies.
White Lodging president and CEO hospitality management Dave Sibley said: "After suffering a malware incident in 2014, we took various actions to prevent a recurrence, including engaging a third party security firm to provide security technology and managed services.
"These security measures were unable to stop the current malware occurrence on point of sale systems at food and beverage outlets in 10 hotels that we manage. We continue to remain committed to investing in the measures necessary to protect the personal information entrusted to us by our valuable guests."
