Australian Information Security Incident Reported: March 22 2018

A flaw in medical software used by more than 40,000 Australian health specialists and distributed by Telstra has potentially exposed Australians’ medical information to hackers, who have been logging into practitioners’ computers and servers to carry out illegal activities.

Default static password allowed medical practitioners’ computers and servers to be accessed remotely by hackers.
