    North Texas Data Breach Could Expose Customer Data

    A North Texas company is dealing with a potentially massive security breach. Southlake-based Sabre says someone hacked its hotel reservation system. (Published Wednesday, May 3, 2017)

    Southlake-based Sabre Hospitality Solutions says someone hacked its hotel reservation system.

    Sabre provides reservation system services for more than 36,000 properties. NBC 5 reached out to the tech company to find out which ones were affected, but Sabre would not tell us locations or when the breach happened.

    According to KrebsonSecurity, the company disclosed the breach in its quarterly filing report on Tuesday. It showed access to customers' payment information was compromised.

    Access to the system has been shut off for now as a third party cybersecurity company investigated.

    This breach follows a similar one that hit Intercontinental Hotel Group, which operates Holiday Inn hotels.

    At least 12,000 Intercontinental Hotel Group properties were affected last month.
