Hotel chain Mandarin Oriental confirms credit card hack
NEW YORK (AP) — High-end hotel chain Mandarin Oriental is the latest company to reveal that its credit card systems were hacked.
The company says its hotels in the U.S. and Europe were affected, but did not specify which ones.
Mandarin Oriental operates hotels in cities across the world including Paris, London, Geneva, New York, Miami, San Francisco, Las Vegas as well as Shanghai, Hong Kong and Macau.
