MGM Data Breach: 10.6 Million Hotel Guests Affected with Their Personal Information Posted on a Hacking Forum

Zdnet has reported that the personal data of 10,683,188 million MGM hotel guests has been posted on a hacking forum. MGM claims that this list of data was from a breach that they disclosed in 2019 and customers have already been informed, but some hotel guests and insiders doubt their account.

The stolen data contains contact details for many high-profile users who now face a very high risk of receiving phishing emails or being SIM swapped the Breach told ZDNet. In fact, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, pop star Justin Bieber, and DHS and TSA officials are some of the celebrities and notables that Under the Breach uncovered in the stolen files.

If you have ever stayed at an MGM property please watch out for phishing emails that try to get you to click a link or give out even more information. If you are worried about identity theft you can sign up for credit monitoring from various websites or even better lock all your credit reports so that no one can open credit in your name without approval. It's easy to lock your credit profiles although it can cost a monthly fee. The sites Transunion, Equifax and Experian are the 3 US credit bureau sites where you can lock your files and protect your data directly. Those sites also have various additional tools and options to scan the dark web and they charge various fees to do so.

Compromised information includes:
Full names
Home addresses
Phone numbers
Emails
Dates of birth
Financial data, passwords or passport numbers

The last time someone in my family had their credit card information stolen with millions of other customers it was from a brick and mortar store called Target! I guess my point is that some people think online shopping is unsafe but it seems that brick and mortar institutions have a harder time protecting data than online companies like Amazon.

jslotter71, That is all good advice! The strip had gotten even worse lately as they dare to pay blackjack at 6:5 and charge for valet parking! And of course you can't win on the strip without a miracle. The station casinos are generally a good choice or any of the locals places like you said.

As far as protecting your identity, the best thing a person could do if they are worried is lock their credit reports with experian, equifax and transunion that way no one can open any new credit on your name at all.

Also everyone should avoid clicking links in any sketchy emails, even if they say they are from some company you do business with and never give money or info to someone asking by email. I do not even click links from my friends and family for that matter.

Oh my , I get alot of emails trying to get me to click on them . i have even had some from pay pal & amazon but a good way to detect them also is to look at from the addy that is sending it with out opening the email and you can tell it did not come from that company. So many crooks ( hackers )out there wanting your info. Yahoo was breeched a few years back and that's how they got my emails and contacts, know i don't keep any contacts in my mail anymore because they all got spam saying it was from me.

That can help with some nefarious clerk or waiter stealing your credit card numbers but would not have helped the people in the MGM data breach because they checked into the hotel, it included their passport and identity info.

I get all that same crap too and you are right most have crazy email addresses.

The very sophisticated phishing emails that they use to get info at high levels or for famous people use the real email address or very close with only one letter different and they use similar header and email text. They sometimes go so far as to make fake websites so people use their real log in details to log in so the hacker can steal that log in and then have access to their accounts or social media or work files or whatever is valuable or to use for blackmail and any other monetary or other purpose.

Or it is as simple as the hacker having control of your device once you click that bad link as it installs malware.

Am not real worried about some one trying to hack my computer cause we pay for KasperSky Protection and plus my bf got us a router that helps protect against being hacked.
When i deposit at a casino or make an online purchase i use a prepaid netspend card, which i fund using my paypal cash or going to the store to fund. I don't have my bank account hooked to paypal just in case they get hacked one day. I try to be safe but hackers are getting smarter every day and that is scary

shirlsplay, Yes I think you are well protected. Really most people regular people get in trouble and lose money with the email scams, not being hacked.

I have been breached more than I care to say But I knew it would happen sooner or later I dont use banks or credit cards My money is on a few diff cards or cash stashed

For those of you who have been breached there are class action lawsuits galore going on I am gonna get some good cash out of a few my self

MGM better get ready cuz they are going to be on top of list of suits to join If any of you were breached and had problems find a class action lawyer and get your self some big bucks

I have had people email me holding old passwords that I have used and want me to pay them thousands One even said he has me on web cam visiting sex places

That dark web is where are web is going to be

Some oblivious people just go on and think it wont happen to them but it does

Good Luck to Every one!!!

laura8393, Thanks, you bring up a good point. Sometimes the data that is stolen are passwords themselves. So do not use the same password for everything!

Also if you ever buy any sort of security camera then make sure to change the default password setting or your camera feed may end up on a voyeur forum.

But I do not know how much money we will be getting from Class actions. If we get $20 each I will be surprised.

the Yahoo data breach class action is supposed to be paying around $100 all of the credit reporting well the big three are also having to pay. Class actions can pay some good cash dont ever not fill one out if you get one. and if you dont then look...there are websites out there that give lists. a little bit helps

Very true. I am in a class action for auto parts price gouging but I think it will be a while before anyone gets a check.

Interestingly, I read this morning that some people are getting checks this week from a google phone class action lawsuit where the phones died with lots of battery left. People are getting $5-$400 depending on what they spent to fix their phones.

There is alot of money out there to be had Since I cant work it really helps Some pay big to They say the yahoo will be - $100-350

Experian is decent to... its just waiting for the checks, Settlements are the best. Waiting for courts and appeals isn,t


IF you google a company chances are the first ones you get will be fake make sure to watch the address cuz they will look just like your bank...paypal... everything. Same with email look at the reply to address. dont ever fall for giving your bank or social sec info to any compnay over the phone tell them send my snail mail
