MGM Resorts International is constantly updating its social media to reassure guests that most of its services are back online amid a cyberattack by ALPHV. However, the ransomware is still affecting slot machines and other computer systems at the MGM Grand, and now the Las Vegas casino is hoping to hire someone to fix the situation as quickly as possible.
MGM Grand hopes to hire a Red Hat Linux System Administrator immediately
According to a job posting posted by Arganteal and shared on social media, MGM Grand hopes to immediately hire a Red Hat Linux System Administrator to work long days. The successful candidate will help “build out the new IT environment following the recent ransomware breach.”
Las Vegas locally Share the job description, paying $110 an hour, on X:
The casino said it is open to people who work seven days as long as they complete the work as quickly as possible. “Higher wages for those willing to keep going until the job is done,” the description states. At a rate of $110 per hour, a successful candidate can earn up to $7,700 in one week.
The cyberattack on MGM began nearly two weeks ago, and analysts estimate the casino giant is losing up to $8.4 million a day. ALPHV, the group behind the attack, warned that it would leak stolen guest information if it did not receive the ransom from MGM. It’s not clear how much this ransom is, but the same group supposedly demanded $30 million from Caesars Entertainment in a similar attack.
