International hotel group Wyndham Hotels and Resorts (WHR) has suffered
yet another serious data breach after hackers broke into its computer
systems, stealing customer names and payment card information.

According to an open letter posted on the firm's site, the luxury hotel
group discovered the attack, which targeted one of its data centres, in
late January.

"By going through the centralised network connections, the hacker was
then able to access and download information from several, but not all, of
the WHR hotels and remove payment card information of a small percentage
of our WHR customers," read the letter.
