An employee was caught with a skimming device after hotel guests complained about fraudulent charges on their credit and debit cards.  The employee managed to get the information after cleaning the rooms of hotel guests. Hotel security was able to determine which employee had taken the credit card information by checking key card information for room activity.  A hidden camera in a mock room showed that the employee was checking the personal belongings of guests and using the skimmer on any cards that were found.

Hackers accessed one of Ravelry's second servers and obtained names, encrypted passwords, and possibly email addresses. Business transactions occur on the site, but no financial information was exposed during the breach.  Since hackers may be able to decrypt the passwords and link them to names and email addresses, Ravelry suggested that users immediately change their Ravelry passwords.  Users should also make different passwords for other accounts if their Ravelry password is the same as the one used for those accounts.
