Canada's Casino Rama Newest Canadian Casino Hack Victim

Nice place to get your data hacked
It's now happened twice in one year to a Canadian casino. First it was the River Cree Casino earlier in the year. Now Casino Rama.

In both casino-cheat hacking cases, malware was used to gain access through casino advertisements.  The results were that hundreds of casino customer's personal records were exposed, mainly credit cards, pin numbers and passwords, all of which can cost these victims at lot more money and aggravation than what they might experience at the casinos' gaming tables.

The first big fallout from all this is a $50 million class-action lawsuit against Casino Rama. Lawyers for the casino will try to claim immunity since the casino is owned by the Chippewa Frist Nation and not a regular Canadian corporation.
