Hackers access up to 34,000 guest records, holiday camp firm confirms

DATA BREACH Customers’ records were targeted

Youth internment chain Butlin's has joined the list of shame that records mass public hackings, with the company saying that the details of around 34,000 guests have been obtained by hackers.

The holiday camp chain says the stolen data does not include payment details - but customers' names, holiday dates, postal and email addresses and telephone numbers are believed to have been accessed.

It said it is contacting people who may have been affected to let them know what has happened and what they should do.

Butlin's MD Dermot King must've been doing the full regretful bottom lip puff when he said: "I would like to apologise for any upset or inconvenience this incident might cause".

The firm has published a dedicated web page with some details about the breach.

"We can not be definitive at the moment with regard to whether all data was hacked", the spokesman told the BBC.
