The world’s largest hotel group disclosed that its Starwood Hotels & Resorts guest database had been illegally accessed, and that the payment card information of up to 500 million guests could have been taken . About 327 million people, according to Marriott, had at least their names, mailing addresses, phone numbers, passport numbers, guest reservation numbers, dates of birth and other identifying information compromised. While payment card numbers and expiration dates were encrypted, it is believed the attackers may have taken components needed to decrypt them. (Financial Times)
