(Un-listed news) Vegas Casinos MGM and Caesars hit with crippling cyber attack a couple weeks ago. One reportedly paying millions in ransom and some casino rewards member personal info breached

I'm late getting caught up, as the story has been kept completely devoid from most news feeds, including Google News, Yahoo News, and a few others that I've noticed.
Yet, a Google Search shows every news station has reported on it.
Here we see where monopolistic control of sources of information, such as curated news feeds, leads to centralized power able to increasingly mislead the public or keep them completely in the dark.

Yeah, it's a nightmare. My wife's company got taken down by one of those ransomware attacks five years ago and they had no choice but to pay the ransom.
I don't know, this isn't the first time I've heard about the casino story. Not sure why you missed it.
It's really hard to know how to deal with cyberattacks and scams. They just get worse every year. Some people are calling for more drastic solutions, and I'm personally sort of the fence about that.
