Choice Hotels Data Breach Could Impact 700,000 Guests
A massive data breach of information from guests who stayed at Choice Hotels and its subsidiaries could have impacted as many as 700,000 travelers. According to ConsumerAffais.com, the Choice Hotels data breach was the result of hackers discovering an unsecured database that contained 5.7 million Choice Hotel records, such as the names, email addresses and phone numbers of former guests. Choice Hotels is the parent company of Clarion, EconoLodge, Comfort Inn, Quality Inn and more. While the company claims most of the data involved in the breach was “test data,” the database was left unsecured online for four days before being discovered by a security team.
