Orbitz Hacked, Email Addresses Exposed

21 March 2018

Travel fare aggregation site Orbitz on Tuesday warned that a hacker may have stolen customers' personal information and payment card details over a two-year period.

Travel website Orbitz announced Tuesday it has detected a security breach that may have affected consumers' personal information shared between January 1, 2016, and December 22, 2017.

Information that was "likely" taken by hackers includes names, credit or debit card details, dates of birth, phone numbers, email addresses, and billing information.

He also laughed off a suggestion that he could take a six-year break before moving to reclaim the presidency in 2030. But independent election monitoring group Golos reported irregularities during polling day, BBC News reported.

"We took immediate steps to investigate the incident and enhance security and monitoring of the affected platform", Orbitz said in a statement. The hack occurred between October 1 and December 22, 2017, but it wasn't discovered until March 1. They are offering free credit monitoring for a year to all victims.

"We deeply regret the incident, and we are committed to doing everything we can to maintain the trust of our customers and partners", the company says.

Travel booking service Orbitz has suffered a data breach.

His publicist also released a statement, confirming that he is stepping down for his TV roles for the foreseeable future. He was first treated a year ago after struggling with an addiction to painkillers following a knee operation in 2015.

"Ensuring the safety and security of the personal data of our customers and our partners' customers is very important to us", the company said in a statement.

Orbitz didn't immediately respond to a request for comment about whether the suspected breach only involves data for USA consumers.

Expedia Inc.'s (NASDAQ: EXPE) subsidiary, Orbitz disclosed on Tuesday a possible data breach that affected almost up to 880,000 credit cards used on the website.

The bodies of 20 women and children have been retrieved from the rubble, said the group, also known as the White Helmets. Oways al-Shami, the Civil Defense spokesman, said continued bombing was slowing down rescue operations.

Expedia first announced the acquisition in February 2015, shortly after it said it would be acquiring Travelocity for $280 million. So it's at least possible that some of the breached payment card information may have been outdated. Additionally, they are providing partners with complimentary customer notice support for partners to inform their customers, if necessary.
