Did you book travel online between January 1, 2016 and December 22, 2017? If so your payment card information, date of birth, phone number, email address, full name, gender and mailing address may be in the hands of hackers. Orbitz online travel has reported hackers have infiltrated an older version of their booking platform, exposing the data of over 800 000 customers.
As Orbitz is used by other companies such as AMEX to book travel, the breach reaches beyond Orbitz’s direct customers. So how do you know if you have been affected? Orbitz and its business partners will be reaching out to notify you. However, in the meantime keep an eye on your bank statements, credit card balances and credit report. The good news is Orbitz’s current systems have not been affected. For more details, visit their website.
