Australian Information Security Incident Reported: August 21 2017

Travel agency Flight Centre is under investigation by the country’s privacy regulator after accidentally releasing personal information of an undisclosed number of its customers to third-party suppliers. The firm is ‘co-operating’ with OAIC inquiries.

The firm confirmed last month that “human error” was behind the data breach.

It has not said how many customers were affected, nor what personal information was disclosed, though in a letter to customers it said “passport details” were included in the leak.
