MGM Resorts International is consistently updating its social media to reassure guests that most of its services are back online amid a cyberattack by ALPHV. However, the ransomware is still impacting slots and other computer systems at the MGM Grand, and now the Las Vegas casino is hoping to hire someone to fix the situation ASAP.

MGM Grand is hoping to immediately hire a Red Hat Linux System Admin

According to a job advertisement posted by Arganteal and shared on social media, the MGM Grand is hoping to immediately hire a Red Hat Linux System Admin to work long days. The successful candidate will help “build its new IT environment after the recent ransomware hack.”

Las Vegas Locally shared the job description, paying $110 per hour, on X:

The casino said it is open to people working a grand total of seven days as long as they complete the work as fast as possible. “Higher Pay for those willing to stick it out until the job is done,” the description explains. A rate of $110 per hour could earn the successful candidate as much as $7,700 in one week.

The cyberattack on MGM began nearly two weeks ago and analysts have estimated that the casino giant is losing as much as $8.4m per day. ALPHV, the group behind the attack, has warned that it will leak stolen guest info if it does not receive the ransom from MGM. It is not clear how much this ransom amounts to, but the same group supposedly demanded $30m from Caesars Entertainment in a similar attack.
