A data breach at MGM Resorts, operator of the MGM Northfield Park racino, reportedly involved the release of personal information last summer of millions of guests of MGM hotels.

MGM Resorts, however, does not have a hotel at Northfield Park, and a corporate spokeswoman said in an email Thursday to that the issue was limited to MGM’s Las Vegas properties.

The website reported late Wednesday that personal details of more than 10.6 million users who stayed at MGM Resorts hotels were published on a hacking forum this week – information that included names, addresses, phone numbers, emails and dates of birth.

In a statement to the New York Times, MGM Resorts International said: “Last summer, we discovered unauthorized access to a cloud server that contained a limited amount of information for certain previous guests of MGM Resorts. We are confident that no financial, payment card or password data was involved in this matter.”

MGM Resorts operates several facilities in Las Vegas, including Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, the Mirage, Luxor and Excalibur.

Its resorts across the country in addition to Northfield Park include MGM Grand Detroit, MGM National Harbor near Washington, D.C., and Borgata in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

MGM Resorts has been operating the former Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park under the MGM name since April 1, 2019.
