Marriott Discloses Data Breach That Could Affect Up To 500M Guests

Excerpt:

Marriott International disclosed on Friday a data breach involving its guest reservation database at its Starwood Hotel brand that it said could affect at least 500 million guests.

Shares of Marriott fell almost 5 percent in pre-market trading on Friday.

The personal information of at least 327 million guests, including name, mailing address, phone number, email address, passport number, birthday and gender, may have been accessed by an unauthorized party, Marriott said in a news release.

For some guests, the information could also include credit card numbers and expiration dates.

The hotel chain said an investigation uncovered the breach, which could affect guests who stayed in Starwood hotels on or before Sept. 10, on Nov. 19. Marriott said it reported the incident to law enforcement.

Well, Damn.

I'll probably get (yet another) notice that my CCs are being replaced. This is getting old. REAL Old.

We need to get "Medieval", or at least "Middle Eastern" on this to get a handle on it. I want to see bodies swinging on ropes. Publicly. Seriously.

The word "Draconian" comes from the Greek leader Draco, who did his best to try to salvage Greek "Democracy". I'm okay with that.
