Hy­att an­nounced Thurs­day that it found ma­li­cious soft­ware in about 250 of its ho­tels, in­clud­ing three in Colorado, that might have ex­posed cus­tomers’ credit- and debit- card num­bers and other in­for­ma­tion to hack­ers. The Colorado ho­tels are: • Grand Hy­att Den­ver, 1750Wel­ton St.

• Hy­att Re­gency Den­ver at the Colorado Con­ven­tion Cen­ter, 650 15th St.

• Park Hy­att Beaver Creek Re­sort and Spa, 136 E. Thomas Place, Beaver Creek.

Hy­att Ho­tels Corp. said the mal­ware was present be­tween July and De­cem­ber within pay­ment­pro­cess­ing sys­tems at its restau­rants, spas, front desks and other ar­eas in its ho­tels. The af­fected dates for the Colorado ho­tels were from Aug. 13 through Dec. 8.

The ho­tel chain doesn’t know how many cus­tomers were af­fected, a Hy­att spokes­woman said. Card­holder names, card num­bers and ex­pi­ra­tion dates might have been ex­posed, the com­pany said.

Sev­eral other ho­tel chains re­ported be­ing hacked last year, in­clud­ing Star­wood, Trump Ho­tel Col­lec­tion and Man­darin Ori­en­tal.
