In mid-September 2008, the company discovered that a sophisticated hacker penetrated the computer systems of one of the hotels. By going through the centralized network connection, the hacker was then able to access and download information from several, but not all, of the other WHR properties and create a unique file containing payment card information of a small percentage of WHR customers. Potentially exposed through this breach are guest and/or cardholder names and card numbers, expiration dates and other data from the card's magnetic stripe.
