InterContinental Hotel Chain notifies guests of payment card incidents

Wednesday 19 April 2017 | 10:32 AM CET

InterContinental Hotel Chain (IHG) has revealed that cash registers at more than 1,000 of its properties were compromised with malicious software designed to siphon customer debit and credit card data.

The company’s dozen brands include Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, InterContinental, Kimpton Hotels, and Crowne Plaza. IHG is headquartered in Denham, UK, and operates more than 5,000 hotels across nearly 100 countries.

The company’s investigation “identified signs of the operation of malware designed to access payment card data from cards used onsite at front desks at certain IHG-branded franchise hotel locations between September 29, 2016 and December 29, 2016.” Still, according to IHG, properties that used its solution prior to the initial intrusion on Sept. 29, 2016 were not affected.

A list of affected IHG franchise locations and respective time frames, which may vary by location, is available here.
