Cybercriminals managed to install malware on payment systems at high-priced Mandarin Oriental hotels. The chain operates multiple locations across the U.S., and if you've stayed at one recently, your credit card information could already be compromised.

“We can confirm that Mandarin Oriental has been alerted to a potential credit card breach and is currently conducting a thorough investigation to identify and resolve the issue,” the company said in an emailed statement.

Fraudulent activity has been popping up on cards that were recently used at Mandarin Oriental hotels. The company confirmed that hackers were able to install malware on credit card systems at multiple Mandarin Oriental hotels in the U.S. and Europe to gain access to card numbers.
