Law enforcement are investigating the hack of several websites operated by the Las Vegas Sands casino.

According to a Wednesday Associated Press article, the targeted sites include Sands' corporate site, along with the home pages for the Venetian and Palazzo casinos in Las Vegas.

On Monday morning, company email went down, and by Tuesday, all of Sands websites had been hijacked by hackers, who defaced the sites and even posted employee Social Security numbers on the Sands' Bethlehem casino website, reports said.

Jenny Shearer, an FBI spokeswoman, told AP that the FBI and Secret Service were investigating the matter. As of Thursday evening EST, the Sands homepage was still down.
