Las Vegas Sands Investigating Website Hacking

Wednesday, 12 Feb 2014 01:09 PM

Las Vegas Sands is working with law enforcement to investigate the breach of its websites, which remain down a day after they were hacked.

State gambling regulators were investigating the cyberattack Wednesday, and the FBI also is aware of the matter.

Sands has added a new message to the hacked sites. The company's corporate site, as well as the home pages of the Venetian and Palazzo casinos, displayed a screen saying the sites are down for maintenance and providing phone numbers for all Sands properties. The hacking disrupted Sands' e-mail systems.

Sands spokesman Ron Reese couldn't say whether credit-card records had been breached.

Sands runs the largest casino in the world, in the Chinese gambling enclave in Macau. It also owns hotel-casinos in Singapore and Bethlehem, Pa.
