Las Vegas Sands keeps mum over why websites have been hacked
(02-13 09:38)

Casino operator Las Vegas Sands, which runs gambling operations in Macau and Las Vegas, Nevada, is working with US law enforcement to investigate the breach of its websites, which remain down a day after they were hacked.
Sands is run by Sheldon Adelson, a Jewish billionaire, who has made massive cach contributions to Republicans.
State of Nevada gambling regulators were investigating the cyberattack Wednesday, and the FBI also is aware of the matter.
Sands has added a new message to the hacked sites. The company's corporate site, as well as the home pages of the Venetian and Palazzo casinos, displayed a screen saying the sites are down for maintenance and providing phone numbers for all Sands properties. The hacking disrupted Sands' email systems.
Sands spokesman Ron Reese could not say whether credit-card records had been breached.
Sands runs the largest casino in the world and also owns hotel-casinos in Singapore and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.--AP
