This was a real hack, people are in danger of identity theft.
DECEMBER 1, 2018
NEW YORK (AP) — Hackers stole information on as many as 500 million guests of the Marriott hotel empire over four years, obtaining credit card and passport numbers and other personal data, the company said Friday as it acknowledged one of the largest security breaches in history.
The full scope of the failure was not immediately clear. Marriott was trying to determine if the records included duplicates, such as a single person staying multiple times.
The affected hotel brands were operated by Starwood before it was acquired by Marriott in 2016. They include W Hotels, St. Regis, Sheraton, Westin, Element, Aloft, The Luxury Collection, Le Méridien and Four Points. Starwood-branded timeshare properties were also affected. None of the Marriott-branded chains were threatened.
The crisis quickly emerged as one of the biggest data breaches on record.
============ WARNING =============
Please, DO NOT OPEN EMAILS!!!!
Only open emails you normal open, new ones can be hackers!!!
Search for big name media, like New York Times, Fox News, your home town newspaper may be the easiest to understand, and the big companies just scare people for more traffic, and refuse to report accurately as Marriot Hotels may be one of their bigger advertisers.
SOLUTION: Do not make reservations with any service, including AirBnB, Booking.com, etc, and this will be difficult, we can only minimize.
