Marriott’s Reservation System Hacked—500 Million Guests’ Info Exposed

Welp, if you’ve stayed at a Marriott location recently, you might want to keep an eye on your credit. The company revealed last week that their guest reservation system was hacked…starting back in 2014. Thanks for the heads up. guys.

And this affects anyone who has made a reservation through a Starwood hotel. That means not just Marriott branded-hotels, but also  St. Regis, Westin, Sheraton and W Hotels. 

According to KCRA, millions of people’s credit card numbers and expiration dates were potentially compromised. However, Marriott says it can’t confirm if hackers were able to decrypt this info. 

“We fell short of what our guests deserve and what we expect of ourselves. We are doing everything we can to support our guests, and using lessons learned to be better moving forward,” said CEO Arne Sorenson in a statement.

Additionally, 327 million people’s personal info was exposed including their names, phone numbers, email addresses, passport numbers and date of birth.

If you want more information, Marriott has launched a website. They have also started to email customers.
