New Lawsuit Claims Marriott Still Exposes Customer Information | #TpromoCom #Marriott #Privacy #Information | A new class action filed against Marriott following the massive data breach alleges that the hotel giant’s systems are affected by a serious vulnerability that still exposes customer information.
Several lawsuits have been filed against Marriott after the company revealed that hackers had access to its systems since at least 2014 and that they may have stolen the details of up to 500 million customers from the Starwood guest reservation database.
The latest class action, initiated by law firm Edelson in Maryland, claims that Marriott’s network is still vulnerable to cyberattacks. Edelson claims its in-house forensics lab discovered a flaw in Starwood’s internal systems that exposes a “wealth of information.”
Edelson’s complaint is redacted to avoid giving away the details of the vulnerability, but it does note that “some of the largest and most significant data breaches in recent history were carried out by leaving open access to this exact type of data.”
