Casino websites go down
The websites of casinos owned by Las Vegas Sands Corp. were down Tuesday.
Patrons got error messages when they tried to visit the home pages of the Venetian casino and the Palazzo casino, which is next door on the Las Vegas Strip. The company's corporate site also was down.
The websites for a Sands casino in Bethlehem, Pa., and its properties in the Chinese gambling enclave of Macau were also down.
The Morning Call in Allentown, Pa., posted screenshots of the sites before they were taken down that showed a picture of Sands CEO Sheldon Adelson posing with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a message condemning the use of weapons of mass destruction.
The sites also featured a list of confidential employee information and Social Security numbers, according to the Morning Call.
