Personal PrivacyMarriott Admits 5 Million Unencrypted Passport Numbers Leaked in Largest Data Breach of All-TimeJanuary 8, 2019Personal Privacydata leakMarriottThe Infinite Brief For the first time, Marriott conceded that its Starwood hotel unit did not encrypt the passport numbers for roughly five million guests. Marriott identified “approximately 383 million records as the upper limit” for the total number of guest reservations records lost, which was originally estimated to be closer to 500 million. The company still says it has no idea who carried out the attack, and it suggested the figure would decline over time as more duplicate records are identified. The revised figure is still the largest loss in history, greater than the attack on Equifax.
