14 Trump Hotels Caught Up in Reservation Systems Breach

Network intrusion; Stolen credentials

Hackers may have stolen customer payment information from multiple Trump Hotel locations, including D.C.

The breach occurred in a third-party reservation-booking system provided by Sabre Corp, the Trump Hotels said in a statement. Sabre notified Trump Hotels June 5 “an unauthorized party gained access to account credentials that permitted access to payment card data and certain reservation information.” 

People who used the booking systems from Aug. 10, 2016, through March 9, 2017, could be affected. The Trump Hotels statement said the data accessed could include payment card information (possibly including the security code to prove physical possession of the card) and in some cases, guests’ email, phone numbers and addresses.

Trump Hotels is one of many travel-related businesses that use the Sabre Corp. tool called the SynXis Central Reservations. When the company disclosed the breach in its Security and Exchange Commission filing in May, it said the system supports 32,000 hotels. Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos notified guests in July some of their guests may have been compromised because of the same incident.
