Footage showed casino machines malfunctioning as MGM Resorts International (MGM.N) reported a “cybersecurity issue” in their systems.

In a statement on Monday (11 September) MGM.N said they began an investigation, which is ongoing, “promptly” after detecting the issue.

According to sources cited by Reuters, a hacking group named Scattered Spider was responsible for bringing down the systems though the entertainment company has not confirmed this.
