Denver-based Millennium Hotels & Resorts North America, and Kirkland, Wash.-based Noble House Hotels and Resorts are the latest hotel chains to suffer card-related, point-of-sale system cybersecurity incidents.

For MHR, the breach involves food and beverage systems at 14 of its U.S. hotels and less than 5,000 cards. The hotel chain said in a press release it originally received notification of the incident by the Secret Service and took immediate steps to investigate, isolate and take down the card-processing elements of the affected POS systems.

Subsequently, MHR received a warning from its third-party service provider, that it had detected and addressed malicious code in certain legacy POS systems, including those used by MHR. Millennium immediately adopted additional security measures as recommended by the third-party service provider.
