    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s luxury hotel company agreed Friday to pay a $50,000 settlement and beef up its security systems after investigators found that Trump’s hotels failed to notify customers that a hacker had stolen their credit card numbers and personal information from Trump Hotel computers.

    Following the initial identity theft in 2015, Trump’s hotels never implemented the cybersecurity plan they were given to prevent a second attack. As a result, Trump’s hotels and some of his condo properties were hacked again less than a year later. When banks alerted the company to the second hack in March, Trump Hotel Collection waited three more months before telling potential victims about the second hack.

    “It is vital in this digital age that companies take all precautions to ensure that consumer information is protected, and that if a data breach occurs, it is reported promptly to our office, in accordance with state law,” said New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in a statement about the settlement on Friday. New York law requires that companies inform their customers as soon as possible about the suspected theft of personal information.

    After they initially tried to cover up the first cyber attack, hotel employees did nothing to fix the vulnerabilities, despite having received written recommendations on how to protect their customers from hackers and thieves. This left Trump’s hotels defenseless when the hackers struck a second time. Once again, Trump waited months before alerting potential victims.

    And Yahoo's great care for their customers - Telling them to change their passwords after TWO YEARS had gone by since the breach.

    Huffpo. :Laugh

    They "banned" David Seaman and deleted his articles because he questioned Hillary's health.





    This is the video that got David Seaman and his articles "banned" from Huffpo.

    Don't try to confuse the OP author with the truth ... like his candidate, he can't handle the truth. This OP is the type of nonsensical pre election rubbish meant to draw you away from the facts. Like Benghazi. How big a cover up was that? It was meant to sway an election, AND IT DID; Obeyme won.
