Hotel Management Company White Lodging appears to be latest victim of Data breach

There have been three massive data breaches reported in the last two months. The data breaches just keep coming. Now, it looks like people used their cards in a number of hotels might be at financial risk.

A latest report from Cybersecurity blogger Brian Krebs reveals a hotel management company White Lodging, which manages hotel franchises under nationwide brands including Hilton, Marriott, Sheraton and Westin, suffered a data breach involving customer's card information.

Krebs started the investigation, after he received reports from multiple sources in Bank industry saying that they have noticed a "pattern of fraud" on a number of cards that were previously used at Marriott hotels.

White Lodging told Krebs that an investigation is in progress and it will provide additional information as soon as it is available.

Krebs said the breach only impacted Mariott guests who used their cards at White Lodging-managed gift shops and restaurants.

Krebs is the one who uncovered the massive data breaches reported in the last two months at Target,Neiman Marcus and most recently Michaels Stores.
