Travelodge customer data stolen

Travelodge is investigating an apparent hacking attack on its customer database.

A spokesperson for the hotel chain said that a “third party” had managed to obtain names and e-mail addresses.

The company warned users of its online service to be on the lookout for spam e-mails.

The incident has been reported to the UK’s information commissioner who can fine businesses for poor data protection.

A letter to customers, signed by the Travelodge’s chief executive Guy Parsons, contained little information about the nature of the leak, although it stressed that the company had not sold users’ personal data to anyone else.

It also included details of a spam e-mail that some customers had received.

“Good day. Don’t miss exciting career opening. The company is seeking for self-motivated people in United Kingdom to help us spread out our activity in the UK area,” said the message.
