    And before you say you don't care, they run several hotels from across the board, including IHG, Hilton and Marriott. Their list of properties is available here:

    http://www.whitelodging.com/portfolio/hotels

    According to Krebs, credit card data appears to have been stolen from the same locations as last year, when there was malware installed at 14 hotels in various cities (Austin, Bedford Park, Denver, Indianapolis, and Louisville).

    The company uses tokenization at the front desk, but all other registers (for restaurants, bars, etc) do not, and these appear to have been the source of the previous hack, and most likely this new one if the system has not been upgraded.

    So... if your bank sent you a new card last year because there was "a data breach" at some unspecified vendor, chances are that it might have been because of this. And chances are that they might be sending you a new one again, if you stayed at one of the properties.

    The CURRENT article from Kerbs is here: http://krebsonsecurity.com/2015/02/banks-card-thieves-hit-white-lodging-again/

    If you want to read up on last year's incident, there's a press release from the company from last February which even includes the hotels that were targeted here: http://www.whitelodging.com/about/payment-card-issues

    Enjoy :)

    They had another breach a year ago, and they have a FAQ about it dated 4 Feb 2014. Don't get confused (like I did).
