All Your Credit Cards Are Belong to US

Another major company hacked, another set of credit cards stolen. Holiday Inn parent company says nearly 1,200 hotels were hacked in late 2016 | The Sacramento Bee

They did announce this hack in December when they found it. But they have more info.

“The investigation identified signs of the operation of malware designed to access payment card data from cards used onsite at front desks for certain IHG-branded franchise locations between September 29, 2016 and December 29, 2016,” the company announced.

According to ComputerWorld, 1,174 hotels in the United States were breached, including 163 in Texas, 64 in California, 61 in Florida, 49 in North Carolina, 38 in Georgia, 19 in South Carolina, 10 in Washington and four in Idaho. You can search for a specific hotel here.

Still searching all the properties. No mention of providing credit-monitoring services to anyone who got stung.
