MGM and Caesars have been disrupted by a series of cyberattacks from a group of young hackers called “Scattered Spider,” an SEC regulatory filing confirmed.
MGM claims that it has dealt with the issues caused by the attacks, but it reportedly still had problems with slot machines and hotel communications as recently as this week. Caesars confirmed in a filing published Thursday that it also dealt with a variety of issues when it was attacked in August.
The FBI has already joined the investigation. Until a resolution is reached, alternatives to modern approaches, such as cash-only transactions, will become the norm.
