It's the second Las Vegas casino group to be attacked this week.

It warms my heart just a little to see crooks robbing crooks.

I hope it was a plucky group of teens who were sticking it to the man and they're gonna use that money to save a rec center or something

Paying the ransom is the stupidest thing you can do when you’re hit with an attack.

Why?

  • Emboldens the attacker to keep attacking you because now they know you’ll pay them
  • Funds the attacker’s future attacks
  • No guarantee they’ll actually stop or recover your data
  • No guarantee they’ve actually left your environment without a complete rebuild.

A better use of ransom money would be to invest in a decent cybersecurity infrastructure to prevent this from happening in the first place, and to keep offsite backups.

**Never trust your attacker. **

What's to stop them from just selling it on the Dark Web anyway?

Reputation for the next hack.

Considering who “deze guyz” are that they’re stealing from, the next hack could include two in the cap!

Oh no! Anyways.

I have no sympathy for those that make money from exploiting gamblers.

A post about hacking from a user named ZeroCool. Yep, checks out. Heh

Going after Vegas Casinos is funny but probably a bad idea for your long term health. Those kinds of people get pretty grumpy when you steal from them.
