Christie’s £670 million art auction hit by cyber attack

Christie’s auction house’s attempt to sell art and other high-value items worth an estimated $840m (£670m) is being hampered by a cyber attack.

Everything from a Vincent van Gogh painting, valued at $35m, to a rare wine is being auctioned in its spring auction.

Potential buyers can’t see them on his website because it has been taken offline.

The sale of a collection of rare watches – including some owned by Formula 1 star Michael Schumacher – has been postponed.

Christie’s told the BBC that it had been targeted in a “technology security incident.”

But it said bids can still be made over the phone and in person, as usual.

“Christie’s has robust protocols and practices, which are tested regularly, to manage such incidents,” he said in a statement.

It has also provided an alternative website where basic information about the items to be sold can be viewed.

Not enough hours
The disruption began last week, but the historic auction house can still hold a charity auction for the watch on Friday in Geneva, which has been pushed back from its original date of 2023.

Auction of One-of-a-kind Watches raises 28 million Swiss Francs (£26.4 million) to accelerate research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Christie’s New York auction will begin on Tuesday with the sale of works owned by art collector Rosa de la Cruz, followed by art collections spanning the 20th and 21st centuries.

The 20th century art collection, valued at $500m, includes art by Pablo Picasso, Georgia O’Keefe and Andy Warhol.

And while people can’t use its website, they can still bid online using its Christie’s Live service.
