Hotel chain reportedly faces yet another breach in less than a year.
US Republican presidential candidate and businessman Donald Trump’s chain of luxury hotels may have suffered another data breach of its customer payment information, according to a KrebsOnSecurity report.
Trump’s organization is currently probing the claims. “We are in the midst of a thorough investigation on this matter. We are committed to safeguarding all guests’ personal information and will continue to do so vigilantly,” the organization said in a statement provided to KrebsOnSecurity.
According to the sources in the article, fraudulent patterns on customer credit cards indicate that hotel customers’ credit card information had been breached at some and possibly all of Trump’s hotel chain locations.
This is the second time Trump’s luxury hotel properties have been hit by card breaches.
In July of last year, KrebsOnSecurity reported a potential breach of the credit card information system at Trump properties, which the Trump Hotel Collection officially confirmed in October.
