Las Vegas Sands Says It’s Analyzing the 11-Minute Video Published by Hackers


Las Vegas Sands Corp continues to investigate hacker attack

Shortly after Las Vegas Sands Corp, one of the world’s largest casino operators, announced that its websites had been restored, the hackers that attacked the company’s systems published a video to demonstrate that they had gained access to a lot of information – over 800 GB, to be more precise.

The company’s representatives say they’re still analyzing the video (removed from YouTube for policy violations), but they admit that the extent of the breach is bigger than initially believed, The Associated Press reports.

Las Vegas Sands has been aware that some employee information has been compromised. However, the video suggests that even passwords for slot machines and player information at the Bethlehem casino have been stolen by the attackers.

The incident is being investigated by the FBI, Secret Service and Nevada Gaming Control Board, but none of the organizations has commented on the matter.

The casino operator became a target after the company’s CEO, Sheldon Adelson made a comment about the US dropping a nuclear bomb on Iran.

The hackers threaten that it will “end in tears” for Sheldon and others who talk like him.
