“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.”
