"We understand that such unauthorized access to card data was caused by an insertion of malicious software code from a third party onto certain hotel IT systems", Chuck Floyd, global president of operations, said in a statement. It was also attributed to malware on hotel IT systems created to capture payment card data.
At the time, the firm had also claimed to have "taken steps to strengthen the security of its systems, and customers can feel confident using payment cards at Hyatt hotels worldwide".
"I want to assure you that there is no indication that information beyond that gained from payment cards - cardholder name, card number, expiration date and internal verification code - was involved, and as a result of implemented measures created to prevent this from happening in the future, guests can feel confident using payment cards at Hyatt hotels worldwide".
Floyd said that Hyatt's enhanced cybersecurity measures and additional layers of defense implemented over time had helped to identify and resolve the issue, but obiviously not before customer payment card data was impacted. Only five of the Hyatt properties affected in this most recent breach included USA locations, including three resorts in Hawaii and one each in Guam and Puerto Rico. And the company itself admits that "the available information and data does not allow Hyatt to identify each specific payment card that may have been affected".
The payment card breach affected 18 Hyatt properties in China, making it the most widely infected target.
In January a year ago Hyatt announced that 250 hotel locations in 50 countries were affected by a payment card breach that occurred between August and December 2015.
But Hyatt is not the only hotel chain to be hit by malware.
