French Lick Resort confirms guest credit card information stolen

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – The French Lick Resort says a data breach may have compromised its credit card system.

Guests and visitors of the resort may have had their credit card information compromised, if they used a card between April 23, 2014 and Jan. 21, 2015.

An investigation with a data security company showed that malware had made its way into the payment system, but has since been removed. The company says cards used at the resort after Jan. 21 are believed to be safe.

“Many members of the community, our employees, and friends of the resort could be among the guests whose credit card information was compromised,” said Chris Leininger, chief operations officer of French Lick Resort. “We hope to contact anyone who could have been affected by this to ensure that they can act to protect themselves.”

The company is offering a year of identity theft protection to anyone who was affected by the issue.

“Identity theft can be unsettling and scary,” said Chris Leininger. “We're truly sorry that our guests have to experience this, and we'll do our utmost to prevent anything like this from happening in the future.”

Anyone who used a credit or debit card at the resort between April 23, 2014, and January 21, 2015 could be at risk. If you have any questions about if you were affected or what you should do next, call the resort at 877-664-3577.
