Las Vegas cyberattack: Why can’t governments stop cyberattacks? | Maybe, It’s because many governments are INVOLVED in cyberattacks?

A “cybersecurity issue” at MGM Resorts has forced the famous hotel and casino company to shut down many of its systems, according to a statement the company posted just before noon ET on X (formerly Twitter). Late on Monday evening, MGM shared another message on X, saying, “…our resorts, including dining, entertainment, and gaming, are currently operational, and continue to deliver the experiences for which MGM is known,” and that front desk staff can assist guests as needed.

MGM replaced its homepage with a message apologizing for the site’s outage and providing a list of concierge phone numbers at several locations, like the Aria, The Cosmopolitan, Mandalay Bay, Bellagio, New York-New York, and Vdara.

The issue isn’t limited to MGM’s Las Vegas locations. NBC 10 News in Philadelphia reports that MGM’s Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City was likewise affected by the attack, though hotel representatives didn’t say how. MGM Grand Detroit Casino is also affected, reports Play Michigan, with an X user posting that the casino “has all games running” but that digital keys and MGM’s rewards program are down.
