Desmond Hotel working to rectify credit card breach

Posted:

ALBANY, NY - Multiple investigative agencies are working to make sure another security breach within the Desmond Hotel's credit card system doesn't happen again.

Anyone who stayed at the Desmond Hotel between May 2011 and March 2012 was at risk of having their credit or debit card information stolen, after a hacker got into the hotel's computer and stole financial information.

On Friday, Desmond General Manager John D'Adamo said the Secret Service, the Attorney General's office, and an independent forensic investigation team are working together to identify how the breach occured, who breached the system, and what safeguards can be put in place to protect the hotel in the future.

Anyone with concerns are asked to call the Desmond Hotel at (518) 869-8100.
