Reporters at The Morning Call captured images of a cyberattack on websites for casinos owned by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation. The attacks appear to take issue with Sands CEO Sheldon Adelson's support for Israel. The attacks disabled websites and compromised employee information. Nevada Gaming Regulators are investigating, and the FBI may also be looking into the attack. What did the attack look like? And how is the company responding?
