Oracle Micros Data Breach

Micros, a hugely popular restaurant and hospitality is the subject of a major data breach investigation. On Monday, 8 August 2016, Oracle Security informed Oracle MICROS customers that it had detected malicious code in certain legacy MICROS systems. Oracle is currently investigating the compromise.

Micros is used by many of the large hotel brands as well as restaurants. Over the last year, many in the hospitality industry have announced data breaches, though a link between the two has not been announced.
