If you’re one of the millions who rocked out at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas or slurped noodles at a Noodles & Company fast food chain in the past year, it’s time to get paranoid. Both companies announced this week separate breaches that include unauthorized access to credit card data.
The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas began notifying guests and patrons of “certain restaurant and retail outlets” located at its Las Vegas casino that hackers breached payments systems extracting credit card data. Credit card data exposed included cardholder name, card number, expiration date, and internal verification code.
“After receiving reports of fraudulent activity associated with payment cards used at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas, the resort began an investigation of its payment card network and engaged a leading cyber-security firm to assist,” the company said in a statement.
