Hyatt says 250 of its hotels had malware last year

There’s an update to the breach reported by Hyatt Hotels in December. Joseph Pisani reports:

Hyatt said Thursday that it found malicious software in about 250 of its hotels, including five in the Chicago, that may have exposed customers’ credit- and debit-card numbers and other information to hackers.

It’s the first time the hotel operator has listed the hotels affected since it announced it found malware at its hotels in December.
