The computer system of an engineering and design firm commissioned to work on part of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge was hacked on March 2, the South China Morning Post reported yesterday.
The firm, Ove Arup & Partners Hong Kong, was contracted to design and build the Hong Kong Link Road project in partnership with Dragages-China Harbour-VSL Joint Venture, estimated at a total amount of HK$12.9 billion (MOP13.28 billion/US$1.65 billion).
The cyber attack targeted a server in Ove Arup & Partners’ office through ‘ransomware’ software with some of the files encrypted for ransom from staff, the news media outlet quoted a staff member of the department as saying.
The company claimed the incident has not compromised private personnel information – stored on another server – or affected the progress of the contract, with the incident immediately reported to the police.
Lam Cheuk-ting, a Hong Kong Democratic Party lawmaker, said that the government should have immediately informed the public about the attack which happened nearly two months ago since the project “involves a tremendous amount of public interest.”
No-one has yet been arrested in connection with the attack, SCMP noted.
