LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas Sands says hackers stole some customers' Social Security and driver's license numbers during a data breach earlier this month.

The casino company confirmed in a statement Friday that the information about some patrons at its Bethlehem, Pa., hotel-casino was compromised during the Feb. 10 attack.

Sands says it's still working to determine whether information about customers at other properties was breached.

Las Vegas Sands Corp. is the world's largest casino company by revenue. It runs the Italian-themed Venetian and Palazzo casino-resorts on the Las Vegas Strip and several casinos in China and Singapore.

In the statement, Sands notes that the number of patron accounts that were compromised make up less than 1 percent of all visitors to the Pennsylvania casino since its 2009 opening.

The company says it's notifying affected customers and providing them with credit monitoring and identity theft protection.
