FBI says third-party gaming providers used to breach casinos

The FBI has issued a warning that threat actors using ransomware are aiming their attacks against casino servers and are gaining more access to the network by using reputable system management software.

The government states that third-party suppliers and services are a typical attack vector in a notification to the private industry. To hack casinos, ransomware groups still depend on outside gaming providers.

“New trends included ransomware actors exploiting vulnerabilities in vendor-controlled remote access to casino servers, and companies victimized through legitimate system management tools to elevate network permissions,” according to the agency.

ChatGPT went down due a significant outage that affected OpenAI infrastructure

A significant continuous outage that also affected OpenAI’s Application Programming Interface (API) has brought down the company’s AI-powered ChatGPT big language model-based chatbot.

In addition to “something seems to have gone wrong” failures, customers impacted by these persistent problems also receive ChatGPT’s “There was an error generating a response” message in answer to their inquiries.

“If this issue persists please contact us through our help center at help.openai.com,” the mistakes stated.

OpenAI acknowledged that its technical teams are looking into the problem in an incident report that was posted on the business’s official status page.

“We’ve identified an issue resulting in high error rates across the API and ChatGPT, and we are working on remediation,” it said.

“Demand is quite strong right now. The ChatGPT interface displays a warning notice that reads, “Please hang tight as we work on scaling our systems.”
