The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group reportedly suffered a security breach that exposed customer's credit card data.

KrebsOnSecurity reported Wednesday afternoon that the hotel chain had confirmed it was affected by a breach following questions about a pattern of fraudulent charges from recent customers.

"We can confirm that Mandarin Oriental has been alerted to a potential credit card breach and is currently conducting a thorough investigation to identify and resolve the issue," the company said in a statement. "Unfortunately incidents of this nature are increasingly becoming an industry-wide concern."

The hotel group told Krebs it is coordinating with credit card agencies and "forensic specialists" to protect its customers.

The security news site added that its banking industry sources said the breach "almost certainly impacted most if not all Mandarin hotels in the United States"—although the hotel group reportedly declined to say the extent of the leak.
