Leading sports betting firm BetMGM discloses data breach

Leading sports betting company BetMGM disclosed a data breach after a threat actor stole personal information belonging to an undisclosed number of customers.

While the personal info stolen in the attack varies for each customer, the attackers obtained a wide range of data, including names, contact info (like postal addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers), dates of birth, hashed Social Security numbers, account identifiers (like player IDs and screen names) and info related to transactions with BetMGM.

The company added that it discovered the incident on November 2022 but believes the breach occurred in May 2022.

In a breach notification letters sent on December 21, 2022, customers were advised to watch for 'unsolicited communications' and 'suspicious activity' related to their personal information.

While the betting firm is yet to disclose the number of customers that had their information stolen in the May breach, the likely attackers are already selling it online.
