Hospitality franchisor Choice Hotels, the parent organization of those franchise chains, has confirmed a breach in which attackers stole 700,000 guest records from a publicly available MongoDB database without a password or any authentication. The affected data includes full names, addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers. No credit cards, passwords or Social Security numbers were compromised. The database held 5.6 million records.
