The travel site Viator, a subsidiary of TripAdvisor, has suffered a data breach that has compromised customer's information which includes payment card information.

The company is in the process of notifying nearly 1.4 million customers about the breach.  Of that number, approximately 880,000 people had their payment card data compromised(credit/debit card number, expiration date, name, billing address, email address).

A further 560,000 customers had their account information including email IDs, hashed passwords and nickname accessed by the attackers.

The company said that at this time they have no reason to believe customer's card security codes had been compromised.  They company also said that they don't collect debit PIN numbers, so it could not be compromised.

Viator became aware of the breach after receiving a notification from its payment card service provider that unauthorized charges occurred on a number of our customers' credit cards.

The company said it hired forensic experts to investigate the incident and to identify how their systems may have been impacted.

It is also offering a free identity protection services and credit card monitoring services for those affected individuals.
