The personal information of more than 10.6 million MGM Resorts guests was posted onto a hacking forum on Wednesday, according to ZDNet.

Those impacted included celebrities, reporters, government officials, tech CEOs, and employees, according to ZDNet.

ZDNet reported that they were informed of the posted information by a company called Under the Breach and that the two organizations worked together to verify the leaked information.

Full names, home addresses, phone numbers, emails, and birthdays of 10,683,188 people who had previously stayed at a MGM hotel were included in the leaked files, according to ZDNet’s report.

MGM told the outlet that the information was older, and ZDNet confirmed that none of the guests they spoke to in order to confirm the data had stayed at a hotel after 2017.

A spokesperson from MGM said they couldn’t confirm the number of people whose information was stolen.

Among those whose information was leaked were high profile individuals like pop-star Justin Beiber and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, as well as officials from the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration, according to ZDNet.

Twitter declined to comment on whether Dorsey’s information was compromised.

MGM declined to confirm any specific individuals impacted by the breach, but said it had notified customers “as applicable by state law.” They also said that most of the information would be considered “phone book” information, meaning it can be easily found in a phone book or through a google search, and most states do not require people be notified when that information is released.

The site Under the Breach came across the leaked files on an online forum commonly used by hackers, the company told Business Insider in a Twitter message. A researcher then cross-referenced the information with publicly available data and emails that had been exposed in previous breaches, they said. ZDNet and Under the Breach also confirmed with several individuals whose information appeared in the leaked files that they had indeed …read more

Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg clashed more than ever in the Vegas debate. These numbers show why.

South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg (L) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)

Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg sparred on multiple occasions during Wednesday night’s debate in Las Vegas.
More than 70% of Klobuchar’s supporters say they would also be satisfied with Buttigieg as the Democratic nominee, according to the seven polls Insider conducted between December and early February.
“I wish everyone was as perfect as you, Pete,” Klobuchar quipped after Buttigieg criticized her over her record.
“I thought what he did was personal,” Klobuchar added in an interview with MSNBC after the debate.

With an insurgent Bernie Sanders and a wounded Michael Bloomberg on the debate stage in Las Vegas on Wednesday night, it may have been surprising to see Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg butt heads on several occasions.

However, a look at the numbers shows why the two Midwestern moderates would have an incentive to knock the other down a peg.

More than 70% of Klobuchar’s supporters are at least Pete-curious, telling Insider they would be perfectly fine with him as the nominee through seven polls conducted between December and early February.

By contrast, Buttigieg’s opponent with the most crossover among his supporters is Elizabeth Warren at 68.7%, with Klobuchar in fourth at 45%.

After a two-three finish in New Hampshire, the two candidates did everything in their power to push the other aside in Vegas.

Things started to get heated when Buttigieg criticized Klobuchar for being unable to name the president of Mexico during an interview in Nevada earlier this week.

Buttigieg told the same reporter, “Yeah, President [Andrés] Lopez Obrador, I hope.”

Klobuchar took exception to the swipe.

“I wish everyone was as perfect as you, Pete,” she quipped.

Klobuchar hit Buttigieg on his lack of political experience and for sticking to “talking points.”

The two did not shake hands afterwards.

In an interview with MSNBC in the “spin room,” Klobuchar said other candidates told her they have forgotten the names of important figures before, and that Buttigieg was out of line.

“I thought what he did was personal,” she told Chris Matthews. “… It was one error and he decided to make that the centerpiece of his attack.”

Klobuchar the lamented the overall tone of the evening, which saw far more fireworks than previous debates.

“Not my favorite night for the Democratic Party,” Klobuchar told Matthews.
