Affinity Gaming reports payment system was hacked

Updated Monday, May 5, 2014 | 11:56 a.m.

A Las Vegas company that owns casinos in four states says its system for processing credit and debit card information has been hacked.

Affinity Gaming issued a statement last week saying it has no evidence that credit card information is being stolen. Company officials say they've taken steps to secure the system, and the independent cybersecurity firm Mandiant was looking into the breach.

The announcement comes a few months after Affinity reported a different cyberattack. The company said in December that its card processing system was infected with malware that compromised card data from customers.

Affinity owns 11 casinos, including five in Nevada, three in Colorado, two in Missouri and one in Iowa.
