Guests of The Galt House notified about credit card security breach

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Guests of The Galt House Hotel are being notified of a cyber security breach that compromised credit card data. 

The breach impacts guests that stayed at the downtown Louisville hotel from December 21, 2016 to April 11, 2017. 

A release from the hotel says a security investigation found malware on their payment card processing system. That malware copied some guests' credit card information including names, account numbers, expiration dates and verification codes. 

The Galt House says the issue has been fixed, and the hotel is working with a computer forensics firm to strengthen security to prevent future problems. The company says it is also working with credit networks to initiate heightened monitoring of compromised accounts. 

The hotel is also reminding guests to review their credit card statements for any fraudulent activity.  Any unauthorized activity should be reported to your credit card company. The phone number is usually on the back of your card. 

In a statement, The Galt House says it regrets any inconvenience or concern this may cause. 

More information is available on the Galt House Hotel's website, www.galthouse.com, and individuals with questions can contact a dedicated call center at 866-815-1914, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.
