Are you a victim of the Marriott data breach?
If you’re a victim of the monumental Marriott data breach, we may be able to help you claim compensation.
The Marriott data breach has to be the super breach of 2018. Some 500 million customers whose data was on the Starwood reservations database has been compromised. The breach period appears to have been from 2014 up until 10th September 2018. That’s a four-year exposure period!
Marriott International acquired the Starwood chain in 2016. As far as we’re aware, the affected customers were all on a separate Starwood reservations database.
Information comprised in the Marriott data breach
The nature of the information compromised in the Marriott data breach is enough to pout a victim at an immediate risk of fraud.
In fact, with some data potentially being exposed for the past four years, victims may already have been targeted by criminals. They may not even have known that it was the Marriott data breach at the core of how it happened.
Information exposed in this data breach includes:
- Email addresses;
- Telephone numbers;
- Account information;
- Passport numbers;
- Arrival and departure details;
- Dates of birth;
- Gender information.
Marriott have reportedly said that they’re prepared to pay for replacement passports for victims of the breach. Even if they do, the risk of being targeted by criminals remains. The information is enough for someone to commit financial fraud. Its also enough for people to use news of the breach to contact victims and scam people as well.
