Tripadvisor site coughs to card data breach for a potential 800k users
TripAdvisor has suffered a data breach at its Viator tour-booking and review website.
An estimated 1.4 million Viator customers are potentially affected by the compromise, which the firm admits may have exposed payment card data.
The compromise also potentially aired the email address, password and Viator “nickname” associated with accounts. Viator only became aware of the breach after investigators looking into incidents of credit card fraud made the link that victims were also users of its site.
