MGM Resorts International did not pay the ransomware attackers who recently breached its systems 

The cyberattack forced MGM to shut down systems at multiple hotels and casinos 

FTC chair Lina Kahn was among the individuals affected by the hack while in Las Vegas for meetings regarding a merger between Kroger and Albertsons 

Customer data stolen in the breach includes names, contact information, date of birth, and driver’s license numbers 

A "limited number" of customers' social security numbers, passport numbers, or both were also compromised 

MGM did not disclose the exact number of people impacted but stated that the breach pertained to customers who transacted with the company before March 2019 

Fortunately, MGM does not believe that the hackers accessed customers' passwords, bank account numbers, or card details 

The company is notifying affected customers through email and offering free credit monitoring and identity theft protection services 

MGM reported that its domestic operations have returned to normal, with most guest-facing systems restored 

Despite spending under $10 million on various expenses related to the attack, MGM expects to incur total losses of about $100 million due to the breach
