What the Marriott Breach Says About Security — Krebs on Security
We don’t yet know the root cause(s) that forced Marriott this week to disclose a four-year-long breach involving the personal and financial information of 500 million guests of its Starwood hotel properties. But anytime we see such a colossal intrusion go undetected for so long, the ultimate cause is usually a failure to adopt the most important principle in cybersecurity defense that applies to both corporations and consumers: Assume you are compromised.
For companies, this principle means accepting the notion that it is no longer possible to keep the bad guys out of your networks entirely. This doesn’t mean abandoning all tenets of traditional defense, such as quickly applying software patches and using technologies to block or at least detect malware infections.
It means accepting that despite how many resources you expend trying to keep malware and miscreants out, all of this can be undone in a flash when users click on malicious links or fall for phishing attacks. Or a previously unknown security flaw gets exploited before it can be patched. Or any one of a myriad other ways attackers can win just by being right once, when defenders need to be right 100 percent of the time.

Marriott Hacking Exposes Data of Up to 500 Million Guests - The New York Times
The hotel chain asked guests checking in for a treasure trove of personal information: credit cards, addresses and sometimes passport numbers. On Friday, consumers learned the risk. Marriott International revealed that hackers had breached its Starwood reservation system and had stolen the personal data of up to 500 million guests.
The assault started as far back as 2014, and was one of the largest known thefts of personal records, second only to a 2013 breach of Yahoo that affected three billion user accounts and larger than a 2017 episode involving the credit bureau Equifax.
The intrusion was a reminder that after years of headline-grabbing attacks, the computer networks of big companies are still vulnerable.

Daring Fireball: Marriott Hacking Exposes Data of Up to 500 Million Guests
Amie Tsang and Adam Satariano, reporting for The New York Times...
Just awful, particularly the part about passport numbers, dates of birth, and the possibility of credit card numbers being exposed. I’m almost certainly included in this breach — I’m a longtime SPG rewards member, and definitely stayed at a few Starwoods hotels since 2014.

Marriott breach impacts 500 million customers: here's what to do about it - Malwarebytes Labs | Malwarebytes Labs
Today Marriott disclosed a large-scale data breach impacting up to 500 million customers who have stayed at a Starwood-branded hotel within the last four years. While details of the breach are still sparse, Marriott stated that there was unauthorized access to a database tied to customer reservations stretching from 2014 to September 10, 2018.
For a majority of impacted customers (approximately 327 million), the breached data includes some combination of name, mailing address, phone number, email address, passport number, Starwood Preferred Guest account information, date of birth, gender, arrival and departure information, reservation date, and communication preferences. For some of those guests, their credit card numbers and expiration dates were exposed, however, they were encrypted using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-128).

Marriott breach leaves 500 million exposed with passport, card numbers stolen | Ars Technica
Motivations of hackers are unclear, but proprietary Wi-Fi may have been a target.
On Friday, Marriott International announced a system breach that has affected approximately 500 million customers, with stolen information including names, credit card numbers, mailing addresses, email addresses, and passport numbers. The breach is one of the largest in history, after recent Yahoo breaches that compromised the accounts of nearly three billion customers.
The breach appears to have originated at Starwood hotels in 2014—two years before Marriott acquired the hotel chain, according to The Washington Post. "When Marriott acquired Starwood in 2016, the existing breach went undetected during the merger and for years afterward," the Post noted.

Marriott: Data on 500 Million Guests Stolen in 4-Year Breach — Krebs on Security
Hospitality giant Marriott today disclosed a massive data breach exposing the personal and financial information on as many as a half billion customers who made reservations at any of its Starwood properties over the past four years.
Marriott said the breach involved unauthorized access to a database containing guest information tied to reservations made at Starwood properties on or before Sept. 10, 2018, and that its ongoing investigation suggests the perpetrators had been inside the company’s networks since 2014.
Marriott said the intruders encrypted information from the hacked database (likely to avoid detection by any data-loss prevention tools when removing the stolen information from the company’s network), and that its efforts to decrypt that data set was not yet complete. But so far the hotel network believes that the encrypted data cache includes information on up to approximately 500 million guests who made a reservation at a Starwood property.

Marriott Data Breach Affects 500 Million Starwood Guests
Marriott announced today that there has been unauthorized access to the Starwood guest reservation database since 2014. It is not known how the system was hacked, but up to 500 million guests may be compromised.
The incident concerns only the Starwood reservations data because Marriott hotels have a separate system running on a different network. It affects anyone with a reservation at a Starwood property on or before September 10.

Marriott data breach shows cyber security risks of mergers
"The company also admitted that the information also includes payment card numbers and payment card expiration dates. While it claims the payment card numbers were encrypted using Advanced Encryption Standard encryption (AES-128) it also admits that the keys to decrypt those payment cards may also have been stolen. If so, this makes the breach significantly worse as it shows the hackers had complete access to all company information."
