A major Canadian casino has been hit by a cyber attack in which sensitive customer, employee and vendor data was stolen, its management said on Thursday, warning there is a risk the information will be published.
The Casino Rama Resort in Ontario said the hacker claimed to have stolen financial reports, patron credit inquiries, collection and debt information, payroll and other data in an intrusion it first became aware of on Friday.
It said the hacker claims the employee data included social insurance numbers and dated back to 2004, with some other stolen data dating back to 2007.

Update: Some of the data has reportedly been leaked online:
CityNews has obtained pages appearing to be cyberhack data that is part of the massive Casino Rama cyber breach first reported Thursday.
The links include collection agency information, revenue reports from the casino and hotel, and even customers’ credit and betting histories. The information was posted on a website used for anonymously posting text.
One segment of the leak includes information revealing the $100,000 debt of one Ontario resident, as recent as March 2016. Other parts include faxes from the casino to bankers, certifying authorization to maintain credit for use at Rama. An annual performance review of one female employee is also on the page, articulating her “willingness to deliver excellent customer service every shift.”
