Marriott hack affects 500m people

The world's largest hotel company, Marriott International, said on Friday that up to 500 million hotel guests may have had their personal details hacked in a massive four-year-long breach of a reservation database.

Marriott said its Starwood Hotels & Resorts reservation database in the United States had suffered a "data security incident" involving unlawful access stretching back to 2014.

The company said an "unauthorised party had copied and encrypted information and took steps towards removing it."

In a statement, released on Friday, Marriott said it had not yet finished identifying the information that had been duplicated, but that it is believed to contain details on up to 500 million guests.

Of these, some 327 records included some combination of name, mailing address, phone number, email address, passport number and reservation details.
