Las Vegas Still Struggling to Recover from Last Sunday’s Cyberattack

“Chaos and Concern in Sin City,” read this morning’s headline on a video report from ABC News about “the massive cyberattack in Las Vegas crippling several hotels and casinos, and putting a damper on getaways for thousands of tourists there.”

“Today marks a week since that cyberattack hit Las Vegas, and MGM hotels and casinos are still working on getting systems back up and running.. The online reservation site for MGM is still down, ATMs not working, and those playing the slot machines or even video poker having to wait for attendants to pay them out in cash. All of this fiasco leading to long lines at check-in, and now a cyber investigation with the FBI…

Other gaming resorts also having issues. Caesar’s entertainment says they too were a victim of a cyberattack, but their online operations were not impacted. Then this weekend at the Venetian, an outage shutting down some slots, but the resort says they’re back up, and that at least thankfully was not due to a cyber attack.

They report MGM properties were affected as far away as Atlantic City, New Jersey.
