Orbitz Data Breach: What You Need to Know.

If you’ve ever used Orbitz you’ll want to pay attention.

As reported by The Hacker News, it took Orbitz almost 3 months to discover that attackers exploited a legacy version of their travel booking platform

between October 1, 2017 and December 22, 2017. Users of Amextravel.com may also be affected.

Compromised data includes full names of customers, credit card numbers, birth dates, phone numbers, mailing addresses, billing addresses and email addresses. More than 880,000 individuals are affected.

Orbitz is currently working to notify the thousands of affected customers and plans to offer one year of free credit monitoring and identity protection service. Affected individuals should proactively monitor their personal data for misuse.
