Las Vegas Sands Websites are Hacked

One of the world’s largest casino operator Las Vegas Sands Corp., websites are compromised by hackers who defaced at least one company website and posted personal information about employees.


Las Vegas Sands Corp. is a developer of destination properties (integrated resorts) that feature accommodations, gaming, entertainment and retail, convention and exhibition facilities, celebrity chef restaurants and other amenities.

When tried to visit the home pages of the Venetian casino, famous for its ersatz canals, and the Palazzo casino, which is next door on the Las Vegas Strip.

The deface websites also included this text: “Damn A, don’t let your tongue cut your throat. Encouraging the use of weapons of mass destruction, under any conditions, is a crime,”  

The websites for a Sands casino in Bethlehem, Pa., and its properties in the Chinese gambling enclave of Macau were also down.

List of affected websites: 

Sands official website(sands.com), 
Venetian(www.venetian.com), 
Palazzo(palazzo.com), 
Sands Bethlehem(pasands.com), 
Marina Bay Sands (www.marinabaysands.com), 
Venetian Macao (venetianmacao.com), 
Sands Macao(sandsmacao.com)
Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central(sandscotaicentral.com)

FBI spokeswoman Jenny Shearer confirmed that the agency was aware of the problems with the Sands sites, but she declined to say whether the FBI had launched an investigation. Las Vegas police spokesman Larry Hadfield said he was not aware of the issue.

At the time of writing this article all websites are under maintenance.
