Does not concern me personally but, if you have traveled lately, Marriott International was hacked affecting ~500 million people.

If you have stayed at any of the following you may well be affected.

Westin
Sheraton
The Luxury Collection
Four Points by Sheraton
W Hotels
St. Regis
Le Méridien
Aloft
Element
Tribute Portfolio
Design Hotels

Here is a link to an MBAM article on the subject.

This hack has been ongoing for about 4 years, so if you stayed at one of their hotels, you have been compromised. Since the data has not appeared on the BalckWeb authorities think that it is possible some foreign country might be behind this as normally personal data is quickly taken and sold.,

Saw this on the news, doesn't concern me either as I don't travel and have never stayed in a hotel.
