Help Net Security - (International) U.S. officials issued an advisory to hospitality industry companies encouraging them to secure their public computers and limit guest accounts to non-administrator accounts following the arrest of a group of individuals that are suspected of compromising computers in Texas hotel business centers. The suspects allegedly used stolen credit cards to register as hotel guests and used the hotel's business center to download and execute key logging software, which was used to capture the information of other guests.
