Linked – Hilton confirms malware attacks on payment system

“According to the statement issued by Jim Holthouser, Executive Vice President of Global Brands, “unauthorized malware” was used to gain access to Hilton’s point-of-sale systems resulting in the theft of payment card information of some of its guests. The attacks are said to have occurred between November 18 to December 5, 2014; and April 21 to July 27, 2015. Customers who used their cards at any of the Hilton Worldwide hotels – including its subsidiary brands, such as Waldorf Astoria, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Double Tree, Embassy Suites, and others – during these periods have been recommended to monitor unusual activity.”

Not that I don’t already keep a close eye on my credit card transactions. As much as I travel, and use my card, I know better.
