A hacking group has come forward this week to claim responsibility for the breaches into MGM Resorts International, which has shut down many of the company's systems, including hotel booking and slot machines.
The group taking responsibility is called Scattered Spider, and information posted on the darknet explained how the breaches happened. Scattered Spider also indicated that they've made demands to the company's leadership in order to stop the attacks and that the company knows how to contact the group.
In a statement, the group said, "We still continue to have access to some of MGM's infrastructure. If a deal is not reached, we shall carry out additional attacks.
"We continue to wait for MGM to grow a pair and reach out as they have clearly demonstrated that they know where to contact us."
MGM has indicated that they're not going to be paying the ransom, and the issues can be expected to continue until IT professionals can gain access to their infrastructure again.
It was recently revealed that Caesars Entertainment recently paid a $15 million ransom to a hacking group after its loyalty program was breached, which could have exposed social security numbers as well as other sensitive information.
