Australian Information Security Incident Reported: December 11 2017
A skilled hacker in Vietnam stole sensitive data and building plans from Perth Airport after breaking into its computer systems.
The West Australian can reveal Vietnamese man Le Duc Hoang Hai used the credentials of a third-party contractor to get access to the airport’s computer systems in March last year.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s cybersecurity adviser Alastair MacGibbon said yesterday the man stole “a significant amount of data” relating to the airport, including building schematics and details of physical security at airport buildings.
