InterContinental Hotels Group announced that a credit card security breach occurred at 12 of its hotels in the United States.

Malware was found on point-of-sales systems at the properties, which targeted credit cards that were used at any of the hotels’ bars or restaurants between August and December of last year. IHG said that payment cards used at the front desk of any of the properties were not affected.

The malware collected cardholder name, card number, expiration date, and CVV number.

The affected properties were the InterContinental Buckhead in Atlanta; InterContinental Magnificent Mile in Chicago; InterContinental Century City in Los Angeles; the former Holiday Inn Nashville Airport; Holiday Inn-Fisherman’s Wharf, InterContinental Mark Hopkins and InterContinental in San Francisco; the Crowne Plaza San Jose; InterContinental Yorkville in Toronto; the Willard InterContinental in Washington, D.C.; Holiday Inn Resort in Aruba; and the InterContinental in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

A similar event occurred in January 2016 at some Hyatt Hotels and Resorts.
