Las Vegas officials said that that a cyber attack breached the city’s computer systems, but it wasn’t immediately clear if any sensitive data was compromised.
City officials were alerted to the breach around 4:30 a.m. on Tuesday, city spokesman David Riggleman told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The city’s information technology department reacted quickly and was taking “extensive steps” to protect the system, Riggleman said.
The city was still assessing whether any city or public data had been accessed, Riggleman said.
The city faces about 279,000 attempts to breach its computer system every month, Riggleman said.
