casino equipment supplier furnizor de echipamente pentru cazinouri

Casino equipment supplier Gaming Partners International (GPI) is the most recent victim of the attack from the REvil’s hacker group.

A top supplier of casino equipment is the latest victim of a Russian hacker group known as REvil, according to a statement on the Dark Web.

The hacker group REvil reportedly took control over the servers of Gaming Partners International, a leading provider of casino currency and table game equipment worldwide, encrypted 540 gigabytes of sensitive data from it and is asking for a hefty ransom in exchange for returning control over the servers. The hackers gave a 72-hour ultimatum to GPI to pay or have its data revealed to the public and possibly sold.

GPI is the latest victim of the popular Russian hacker group which recently managed to hack celebrity law firm Grubman, Shire, Meiselas & Sacks, which refused to be held to ransom and had data stolen from its servers auctioned off. REvil’s threat that they would reveal damaging details relating to President Trump actually never materialized.

GPI, which has offices and manufacturing facilities in many key regions including the Americas, Europe and Asia, was acquired in 2019 by the Angel Group, the manufacturer and distributor of internationally recognized Angel Playing Cards and Angel Eye and Super Eye dealing shoes.

REvil outlined in their warning to GPI they had all of the most important data, such as financial documents, contracts and technical documentation for the company’s gaming machines, including for its customers in Macau and Mexico. The group did not provide details regarding the amount they request in exchange of returning control to GPI’s servers and not making sensitive data that would cause losses to GPI’s customers public.
