I passed through borgata and see they still haven't repaired kiosks there. Interesting.

I wonder if they are going to leave those off permanently?

At any rate I admit to some schadenfreude. It's poetic that the casinos just got a taste of their own medicine. That is being suddenly and unceremoniously having their operations shut down.

Couldn't have happened to a better company IMO.

not that this is a bad thing but i feel as if this situation has brought the technology portion of APing "back into the stone age" and there are certain APing that cannot be done without it. I also have this feeling you understand exactly whats happening and this is somehow making you money. I just only wish i was in your mind to know how. I dont want to put forth the time and effort to figure it out but in my mind your doing well and that makes me happy.

At Ceasars the cyber attack was specifically on their loyalty rewards program files.

They have issued emails to notify their active members that personal information such as social security numbers, home address, birthdays etc were exposed to the outside actors.

I just assumed all their members would get it.

Here is the gist of what I received below.

WARNING

It took me awhile to locate that email above. I finally found it in my junk folder. Hotmail identified it as junk.

At the bottom of the email caesars offered to pay for credit reporting insured up to a certain amount with a link to take advantage of the offer. It seemed generous at first.

Now I am wondering if that is actually a fishing email.

If no one else has received that email it probably is. I didn't do anything with it so no biggie. Let me know if anyone else has gotten that

Thanks

EDIT on the other hand Hotmail just sent a very legitimate email to my junk folder so I am not sure what's going on.

:)))))

Today I received an email from MGM wishing me a Happy Birthday from a marketing person whose name I致e never seen before. My wife also received the same email.
Our Birthdays are months away from now.
So I wonder if these are a result of the cyber attack?

I also received one and my birthday was in September.

I also received an email thanking players for their patience as they finally have credited points etc earned September 14th-19th.

They clearly are still fixing the hack even now.

The beginning of an article I was reading..

Quote:

What do Boeing, an Australian shipping company, the world痴 largest bank, and one of the world痴 biggest law firms have in common? All four have suffered cybersecurity breaches, most likely at the hands of teenage hackers, after failing to patch a critical vulnerability that security experts have warned of for more than a month,



I wonder how many breaches are just failures to patch? Pay the price for stupid, I guess.

There can be high costs for those patches in terms of down time. If one has to take a system down it could get very expensive. The most recent company that I was doing work for averaged $2.2 million in sales per hour 24 hours per day 365 days a year.. Just imagine what big companies like Amazon do.

your saying that they evaluate these situations happening, and they say well it would cost X much to fix and Y amount of time and then they say, but we make X*whatever per that time and it wouldnt be worth it to fix until this happens right

As far as land-based casinos, sending employees out with vouchers for free meals, or some other perk to customers on the floor seems like a better option than repairing a hacked system over weeks, if you really need to shut it down for a few hours which I assume would be in the early morning hours anyway.
