Hyatt payment system hit by malware, Credit Cards details stolen

If you been to Hyatt Hotel last year, you might want to monitor your Credit Card charges. The Hotel Chain’s payment system was hit by malware designed to collect payment card data.
According to a press release issued by Hyatt, cardholder name, card number, expiration date and internal verification code from cards used onsite were stolen. No indication of other customer information was affected.
You can check the list of affected location and at risk date here. 250 Hyatt-managed locations in about 50 countries were affected. The unauthorised access to Credit Cards data were primarily at restaurants while a small percentage were at spas, golf shops, parking and front desks.
Unfortunately, Grand Hyatt Singapore is one of the affected location. If you used your Credit Cards at Grand Hyatt Singapore between 13 August to 8 December 2015, you might want to monitor your credit card charges.
