Las Vegas Sands Says Hackers Breached Company’s Internal DrivesChristopher Palmeri
Las Vegas Sands Corp. said hackers who broke into its websites last week breached the company’s internal hard drives.
“We have now determined that the hackers reached at least some of the company’s internal drives in the U.S. containing some office productivity information made up largely of documents and spreadsheets,” Ron Reese, a company spokesman, said today in an e-mailed statement.
An 11-minute video posted on YouTube.com appears to show dozens of administrator passwords, employee names and diagrams of the company’s computer network.
“We have seen the video and are continuing to investigate what, if any, customer or additional employee data may have been compromised as part of the hacking,” the Las Vegas-based company said.
The FBI and Secret Service are jointly investigating, said Agent Edwin Donovan, a spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service.
