Crown Resorts investigates hacking breach


Crown Resorts has launched an investigation into a potential global data breach after a hacker group claimed to have illegally obtained company files through a third party source.

The ransomware group claimed it has stolen a limited number of Crown files through the breach of third-party file transfer service GoAnywhere.

Crown said no customer data has been compromised and its business operations have not been impacted.

“Crown is one of many organisations who use the third-party file transfer service, GoAnywhere, which has been impacted by a data breach globally,” the company said in a statement.

“We were recently contacted by a ransomware group who claim they have illegally obtained a limited number of Crown files.

“We are investigating the validity of this claim as a matter of priority.”
