Over 800,000 credit cards stolen from Orbitz

Expedia has found evidence of hackers gaining access to as many as 880,000 credit cards by hacking into an older version of Orbitz’s website, a travel booking platform now a subsidiary of Expedia. Orbitz has confirmed the hack that have potentially affected customers who made purchases in 2016 and 2017, though they didn’t find evidences that personal information was actually taken. Billing information as well as other personal data including names, emails, phone numbers, billing addresses and gender could have possibly been exposed. Orbitz’s investigation suggests that travel itineraries, passport information, and social security numbers were not part of the hack. The current platform is not part of that breach.
