Affinity Gaming's Credit Card Payment System Hacked

Affinity Gaming's Credit Card Payment System Hacked

Affinity Gaming has 11 different casinos and hotels spread across the US and is a very popular place to go and gamble. Now however, there has been some issues as they have just released a statement where they inform their previous customers that their credit card information's may have been breached by a hacker.

The attack doesn't include credit cards that has been used to gamble with, however it does affect those that were used to pay for rooms, food, beverages and everything non-gambling related. The statement reads that the hacking attack “resulted in a compromise of credit card and debit card information used in non-gaming purchases from individuals who visited its casino and casino resort facilities.”

This means that all customers that used their credit cards in one of the 11 casinos from December last year up until April this year, may have had their information stolen. Affinity Gaming urges everyone who has visited and used a credit card in one of their casinos to take the necessary steps in order to protect their financials as well as their personal information.

“Our customers are our top priority, and we can assure them we are working tirelessly, using best-in-class experts to protect our IT system and their information. We deeply regret any inconvenience this incident may cause and are ensuring our customers have the information they need to address any concerns.” CEO of Affinity Gaming, David Ross said.

The problem was discovered in April, when the security department did a regular check on their systems and found an anomaly. When digging into the issue they realized that the system had been compromised and that data theft may have happened.
