FBI Struggled To Disrupt Dangerous Casino Hacking Gang, US Cyber Experts Say | RJR News | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker


US cyber security experts say the Federal Bureau of Investigations struggled to disrupt a dangerous cybercrime gang that has been tormenting corporate America over the last two years.

 

For more than six months, the FBI has known the identities of at least a dozen members tied to the hacking group responsible for the devastating September break-ins at casino operators MGM Resorts International and Caesars Entertainment.

 

Industry executives say they were baffled by an apparent lack of arrests despite many of the hackers being based in America.

 

The hacking group has been active since 2021 but grabbed headlines following a series of intrusions at several high profile American companies.

 

The MGM breach disrupted operations for days costing the company roughly $100 million in losses.

 

Caesars paid around $15 million in ransom to regain access to its systems from the hackers.
