Travel giant Sabre investigates a potentially significant data breach of a reservations system used by more than 32,000 properties.



Sabre Corp. is investigating a potentially massive data breach of a reservations system, which serves more than 32,000 hotels and other lodging businesses, KrebsonSecurity reports. The breach was disclosed in a quarterly filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Texas-based travel business says it is "investigating an incident of unauthorized access to payment information contained in a subset of hotel reservations processed through our Hospitality Solutions SynXis Central Reservations system."

Sabre has informed affected properties that unauthorized access has been shut down and they have not detected signs of ongoing illicit activity. It did not have additional details about what caused the breach or when it took place. Forensics firm Mandiant is helping with its investigation.
