Hackers Attack Trump Hotels, Steal Credit Card Details and Personal Data

Hackers breached the systems used by 14 different Trump Hotels properties between August 10, 2016 and March 9, 2017, managing to steal sensitive information like guests’ credit card details and other personal information.

In a 9-page notification published on the official page, Trump Hotels informs customers that hackers managed to breach the systems of Sabre Hospitality Solutions (Sabre) and not its own systems, though it confirms that personal information has been exposed.

“Following an investigation, Sabre notified us on June 5, 2017 that an unauthorized party gained access to account credentials that permitted access to payment card data and certain reservation information for some of our hotel reservations processed through Sabre’s CRS,” the company explained.

Credit card and personal information possibly stolen

Credit card information like cardholder name, payment card number, expiration date and possibly the card security code was accessible by hackers, Trump Hotels explains, along with name, email, phone number, address, and other information that is typically used by a hotel reservation service. Information like Social Security, passport, and driver’s license is fully secure.

“We are working with Sabre to address this issue. We understand that Sabre engaged a leading cybersecurity firm to support its investigation. Sabre indicated that they also notified law enforcement and the payment card brands about this incident,” Trump Hotels said.
