Extent of hack at Vegas Venetian and Palazzo casinos is unknown

Network intrusion

The websites of the two Las Vegas Sands Corp. properties are down, email systems were disrupted and a company spokesman couldn’t say whether credit card records were affected.

Sands is working with gambling regulators and authorities to investigate the compromise of the sites, which remained offline a day after they were hacked.

“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 AP reports.
