Another hotel chain is warning its customers that their payment card information may have been compromised in a malware attack.

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, the operator of boutique properties nationwide, posted an alert on its website to notify guests about the data breach. According to the posting, Kimpton first learned in mid-July about unauthorized charges on payment cards belonging to guests.

Hotel data breach: What you need to know

After hiring investigators, Kimpton found out that hackers installed malware on the servers that processed payment cards used at the restaurants and front desks of some hotels.

“The malware primarily found track data that contained the card number, expiration date, and internal verification code, but in a small number of instances it may have found the track that also contains the cardholder name,” read an excerpt from Kimpton’s website.

Cards used at certain restaurants and hotel front desks from February 16 to July 7 were involved. Here’s a list of the 62 affected properties, which are located in several dozen cities:
