Number Of Records Exposed: 500 Million

Marriott International disclosed in November that password numbers and payment card information have been compromised due to a breach of the Starwood guest reservation database. The hotel chain determined that the information accessed includes data on as many as 500 million guests who had made a reservation at a Starwood property.

Threat actors obtained payment card expiration dates and an encryption version of the payment card numbers for some of the guests. However, Marriott has been unable to rule out that both of the components needed to decrypt the payment card numbers were also taken.

Reuters reported in early December that hackers behind the breach left clues suggesting they were working for a Chinese government intelligence gathering operation. A Chinese foreign affairs spokesman said relevant departments will carry out investigations into the matter if they are offered evidence.
