Budget hotel chain Travelodge UK sent its customers an email confirming that their customer database has been accessed by unauthorized individuals and that the collected email addresses have been used in a spam campaign:
According to the warning, the number of affected used is small and no financial information has been compromised. The company’s chief executive Guy Parsons emphasized that Travelodge didn’t sell the data to third parties.
The company is investigating the breach and has notified the Information Commissioner’s Office of it. No further details were shared at this time, but users are warned to be careful of similar or phishing emails.
