Hard Rock In Las Vegas Finds Out That Payment Card Data Was Hacked

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas said it notified its customers that an investigation into reports of fraudulent activity identified signs of unauthorized access to the resort's payment card data. The company said people who used cards at certain restaurant and retail outlets at the resort between Oct. 23, 2015 and March 21, 2016 could have been affected. The company said on May 13, it detected the presence of card-scraping malware targeting payment card data, that in some instances identified the cardholder's name, the card number, the expiration date and internal verification code.
