Travelodge admits security breach

Hotel chain Travelodge has confirmed that names and email addresses contained within its customer database have been obtained by a hacker group, after customers reported spam emails to them.

A spam e-mail that some customers had received says, “Good day. Don’t miss exciting career opening. The company is seeking for self-motivated people in United Kingdom to help us spread out our activity in the UK area.”

The ICO has stated that it will be looking into the details surrounding the breach, and will ascertain if and action needs to be taken.

“Asserting that safety and security of customers’ personal information as their top most priority”, the company said it is currently conducting a comprehensive investigation into this issue.
