Marriott Hack Leaks Private Data of 500 Million Guests

The Infinite Brief
The records of 500 million customers of the hotel group Marriott International have been involved in a data breach.

An internal investigation found an attacker had been able to access the Starwood network since 2014.

Many records included encrypted payment card information, but Marriott could not rule out the possibility that the encryption keys had also been stolen.

The company said it would notify customers whose records were in the database.
