    1,200 InterContinental hotels were breached by credit card stealing malware

    InterContinental Hotels Group said earlier this year that about a dozen of its hotels had been infected with credit-card stealing malware — it turns out, the number was around 100 times that.

    The hotel group, which operates Holiday Inn, Kimpton, and several other brands, has now released details on the broader scope of the security breach. “Approximately 1,200 IHG-branded franchise hotel locations in the Americas were affected,” a company spokesperson tells The Verge.

    The news of this breach broke back in December, and points out that IHG hasn’t inspected all of its hotels yet — some of its hotels are franchises, and it’s been reaching out to those locations asking them to take part in the investigation.

    IHG confirmed that the investigation was ongoing in an email to The Verge, saying that a “small percentage” of franchises haven’t participated. The investigation is also still ongoing at some properties that are participating. The group says it has 3,925 hotels in the Americas.

    IHG has published a look-up tool to let its guests see if a hotel they stayed at was breached. You can use the tool here. It’s pretty straightforward, presenting a list of affected hotels in whichever city you choose. IHG says it’ll add any additional locations to the list when its investigation wraps up.

    The breach started at the end of September 2016 and continued to the end of December 2016, according to IHG. The hotel group says there’s no evidence the malware was active after December 29th, however it’s not positive that all the malware was actually removed until this March.

    Glad I don't stay there. It's either Marriott or no-tels for me.

    Some of the Holiday Inn Expresses I've stayed at in recent years were actually quite nice. I recall a time when the old Holiday Inns were Howard Johnson's best competition.

    I don't know if it is just me or not, but every Marriott I've gone to in order to see a provider, it's like the Front Desk staff's eyes are burning a hole in the side of my head as I pass by to get to the room. There goes another one, I can almost hear them saying.
