Rivers Casino in Des Plaines, Illinois, suffered a data breach recently. Although the casino response team answered the threat immediately, the threat actors still stole data from their network. Rivers is the most profitable casino in the area, serving millions of gamblers every month; consequently, the breach is likely significant.
Officials found suspicious activity within their systems during the event. Although the casino operations were not interrupted, the attack was presumably significant based on Rivers’ response.
The incident started on or around August 12th, 2023; there is no indication of how long the threat had access to the systems, so the impact of this breach may be significant. It wasn’t until around November 2nd that officials made the discovery.
According to the breach notice published on the Rivers’ website, specific groups may see consequences of the incident. Casino members, customers, and online sports book customers may have had data stolen. The information may pertain to individuals from years past and current credentials.
The number of files associated with this breach remains uncertain. If the breach is similar to other casino incidents, there may be thousands with compromised data. Individuals belonging to one of the groups above don’t need to wait for a notice to start taking decisive action.
