RansomHub Claims Responsibility for Cyberattack on Christie’s Auction House


According to the New York Times a Russia-based ransomware gang known as RansomHub via a post on the dark web claimed responsibility for a cyberattack targeting Christie’s auction house.

The group claimed credit for the attack on Monday.  It occurred earlier this month, on the prestigious auction house’s website. And was timed to disrupt the annual high-profile spring sales event, which featured over $850 million worth of art.

Christie’s has locations in New York and London.

The cyberattack forced Christie’s to suspend online bidding, compelling clients to place bids by phone or in person.

 Initially described by Christie’s as a “technology security issue,” the event has now been attributed to RansomHub.
