MGM Resorts International Chief Executive Officer Bill Hornbuckle chose not pay a ransom to hackers who broke into his casino chain’s computer system because they didn’t ask for money until well after the company discovered the attack.

The intruders moved through MGM’s systems for several days before sending a ransom note, Hornbuckle said in an interview Tuesday. The attack was so far along and the company had already begun rebuilding systems that were pulled offline that Hornbuckle chose to not even respond to the hackers.
