Marriott Hacking Disaster Update
The security and hacking scene asks if Marriott is setting itself up for another hacking disaster. As known, Marriott sent millions of emails admitting that there was a massive data breach in its Starwood subsidiary’s database affecting 500 million guests. The problem is they sent it from the unknown domain email-marriott.com
(possibly to prevent being black listed with the main domain as Spammer) and without using a secure https account. A method many hackers take advantage of after data breaches for phishing. Furthermore compare email-marriott.com with email-marriot.com (a spoofed domain). Many cases happened like that in the last couple of years. Means it is a dangerous time for their clients to get informed.
(Editors Note: now everybody in the scene is speculating about Marriott’s carelessness. We hope that smart CIO/CTO managers watch similar domains or register similar domains to protect them away from hackers. From the hotel chain has been no response so far. We will stay updated!
