Crown Resorts is investigating a potential data breach after being targeted by a hacking group. Crown confirmed the attack on Monday, noting that its third-party file transfer service GoAnywhere had been targeted by a “ransomware group who claim they have illegally obtained a limited number of Crown files”.

The group notes that it is “investigating the validity of this claim as a matter of priority”.

The group furthers that it “can confirm no customer data has been compromised and our business operations have not been impacted”.

Gaming regulators have subsequently been informed and the group notes that it is continuing to work with law enforcement on the issue.

GoAnywhere has been the target of numerous incidents that came to light in recent weeks, with US cybersecurity firm Fortra noting the suspicious activity as early as two months ago.

The attacks have also impacted groups such as mining giant Rio Tinto.
