Hackers breached the Las Vegas Sands casino in Pennsylvania stealing customer information. On March 2, NewsOXY reported that the the Las Vegas Sands casino websites had been hacked and that 828 GB of data from the casino servers had been hacked according to a YouTube video posted by the people responsible for the breach.
"We have determined that some employee and customer data at our Sands Bethlehem property has been compromised. We are committed to ensuring the security of all data that our guests and team members entrust to us, and are providing free credit monitoring and identity theft protection service through Experian to identified customers by the data breach," Las Vegas Sands said in a statement.
The hackers of the Las Vegas Sands casino were the ones to reveal that customer information had been stolen -- the casino, at first, claimed that no one was really impacted and that customer information was safe. The hackers, however, revealed that they did obtain quite a bit of personal information of casino patrons. Over 10,000 people are expected to have been affected by this breach.
At this point, the casino has said that they don't believe that customer's information is being misused. They feel that the ultimate goal of the hackers is to hurt the casino, not its customers and they are hopeful that the hackers will just "discard" the information that they don't "need."
The hackers hit Las Vegas Sands casino in Pennsylvania primarily, but since the breach was on the company's website, other hotels in the chain -- even one in China -- have been compromised. Check out the video above for more.
