Trump Organization Examining Possible Credit and Debit Card Breach
The latest victim to make news for a credit and debit card security breach was the hotel business owned by Donald Trump.Â A "thorough investigation" was being carried out said the company.
Eric Trump, the executive vice-president of the Trump Organization said "We are committed to safeguarding all guests' personal information and will continue to do so vigilantly."
Brian Krebs, the security expert reported that several of the US banks identified a particular pattern of fraudulent transactions that involved accounts which have been used at a Trump Hotel Collection property. According to Krebs, the attack seems to be dating back to February.
In a blogpost, Krebs reported on July 1, that at least five locations seem to have been involved in the attack including New York, Chicago, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Miami.
Ken Westin, an analyst with Tripwire, the online security firm says that the evidence indicates at a "sophisticated and orchestrated attack."
The Trump Organization is not the only one to have been attacked by fraudsters. In May, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas also said that a cyber attack might have led to compromise of credit card information of customers at its locations. Even Home Depot and Target have faced similar attacks.
