The Russian hacker group known as REvil has revealed that it has hacked the servers of casino equipment supplier Gaming Partners International (GPI). The hackers also issued a 72-hour deadline for the company to pay the ransom.

The hackers said they had stolen 540 gigabytes of sensitive data from GPI, including financial documents, contracts and technical documentation for all of the company’s gaming machines.

“Absolutely all servers and working computers of the company are hacked and encrypted,” the hackers said in a statement on the Dark Web obtained by DailyMail.com.

“We have all the most important data from all your servers, including Macao and Mexico,” REvil said.

“In another 72 hours, if you do not pay for our silence and decryption, all information from your severs will go public, which will bring huge losses to all customers to whom you provide your products,” the group added.

REvil did not specify their financial demand in the public statement.

FEJAR is recognised as Spain’s longest-serving therapeutic society specialising in the treatment of gambling addiction and its compulsive behaviours.

“We are very proud of joining forces with Fejar in the fight against problematic gambling in Spain,” Andrea Vota, president of Jdigital, said.

“Our members have a strong commitment to their users and society in general, as well as with our goal of promoting safe and responsible environments for online gambling activity as a responsible form of entertainment,” Vota added.

Jdigital underscored that its relationship with FEJAR would be totally transparent, with its partner publishing independent reports on the helpline progress and development.

“The first phone number to be launched in collaboration with the Spanish online gambling association. We are pleased to have signed this agreement with Jdigital and some of the main online gambling companies in the country, because it highlights the importance of joining efforts on the fight against problematic gambling, a task that has been Fejar’s main goal since its foundation in 1991,” Maxi Gutiérrez, president of FEJAR, said.
