Been to a Hyatt Hotel? Your credit card details may have been stolen

There has been a security breach with the systems used at Hyatt Hotels. This affects people staying at the hotel, as well as anyone who used a credit card at one of their restaurants.
There is a growing trend where hackers are able to put malware onto the point of sale systems used at the hotels. Then, when someone makes a payment the credit card details are stolen.
Hyatt have issued a press release with more information about the breach.
