Melbourne IT Unaware of Chinese Hack in US Indictment

Australian company Arq Group, previously known as Melbourne IT, said this week that it was unaware that it had been victimized by an alleged Chinese government-backed hacking attack targeting US and European aircraft engine technology companies.


Arq Group chief executive Martin Mercer said that the revelation came as a surprise to them and the company did not and never has received advice from the Dept of Justice or anyone else related to the events described in the indictment.


In an official statement to the ASX, Mercer said that the company is “very confident” about the integrity of its systems and customer data.
