(CTN News) – Earlier this week, a representative from MGM Resorts International confirmed to Business Insider that the company was experiencing a “cybersecurity issue” affecting some of its systems.
According to MGM officials, they are working with law enforcement agencies to ensure the security of their systems. There were a number of systems that were shut down to protect the company’s data, according to the company officials.
The statement released by MGM Resorts International on Monday stated that, “Shortly after detecting the issue, we launched an investigation with the assistance of leading external cybersecurity experts,” according to the statement.
During the midday hour on Monday, all MGM Resorts International websites were unavailable due to an outage that occurred at some point during the day.
In case you need to get in touch with one of the resorts, there is an informational website on the website that has the phone numbers of each of those resorts listed.
The Aria property of MGM Resorts was experiencing some issues with a few slot machines that were not working on Monday at midday.
As of right now, it has not been confirmed whether or not the outage was due to the cybersecurity issue that the company had reported in the past or whether it was caused by a different issue altogether.
It has been reported that the investigation into the matter is still ongoing, according to officials.
A number of Las Vegas properties are managed by MGM Resorts International, including Aria, Bellagio, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and The Mirage, to name a few.
There are many hotels in Las Vegas such as the Delano, Excalibur, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand Las Vegas, New York-New York, Park MGM, and Vdara.
