As you can see, there are Hyatt, Marriott, Starwood and IHG properties among the malware victims, many of which are extremely popular in the points and miles community. All of these properties are owned and operated by HEI Hotel & Resorts, which insists the breach has been contained.

Areas affected include bars, restaurants, spas and shops. Names, credit card numbers and expiration dates, and verification codes may have been captured by the malware.

If you have stayed at any of these properties during dates that the malware is believed to have been present, pay extra attention to transactions involving the credit used for your stay. If you notice any suspicious transactions notify your credit card issuer immediately and contact HEI Hotel & Resorts or the hotel property at which you stayed. As of this writing, no free credit monitoring has been offered by HEI, they have however published a statement about Identity Theft Protection.

In addition to regularly checking your credit card statements, be sure to use free credit monitoring services, like those offered through CreditKarma.com and Credit.com.
