Data Breach

What should I do?
Your first step should be to read our checklist on how to respond to a data breach.

And keep a watchful eye on your inbox. Opportunistic scammers know about the data breach and will send out phishing emails designed to look like official correspondence from Marriott/Starwood, law enforcement, financial institutions, or any organization related to the data breach.

In the event that you do receive malspam of some kind, Malwarebytes customers are protected from malicious download links.
