Hotel Guests Information – level 1
Marriott is a hotel chain. Marriott has hotels in all of the world. It is a very big company. It has millions of customers.
In January, somebody hacks one of Marriott´s computer systems. Hackers get a lot of information about more than 5 million customers. Marriott sends emails to all of them. Hackers know their names, addresses and phone numbers.
Marriott has some important customers. These customers get more services. Hackers know information about these customers, too. Luckily, hackers do not get information about credit cards and passwords.
In 2018, hackers get into Marriott´s system. They get personal information about almost 500 million guests.
Difficult words: hotel chain (a company that has many hotels in different places), hack (to illegally get into somebody´s computer), hacker (a person who illegally gets into somebody´s computer and steals information from it).
