Hyatt announced today that its payment systems were breached, exposing credit card data from 41 hotels in 11 countries. The hack was discovered in July and the investigation only just recently concluded.
The three U.S. hotels affected were all in Hawaii, with the remaining 38 scattered around the world (China had the most trouble).
In a statement, Hyatt said it “has taken steps to strengthen the security of its systems, and customers can feel confident using payment cards at Hyatt hotels worldwide.”
Wait, no. That’s from the statement it issued when it was hacked in late 2015.
The new statement reads: “we have resolved the issue and implemented additional security measures to strengthen the security of our systems. Customers can confidently use payment cards at Hyatt hotels worldwide.”
