Incident: Government left red-faced by health privacy commissioner’s website bungle | MSN Australia

Australian Information Security Incident Reported: July 18 2018

The National Health Practitioner Ombudsman and Privacy Commissioner’s website was unavailable for several hours on Tuesday evening, leading to concerns of a serious data breach and embarrassment for the government as it attempts to quell privacy concerns over its new digital health record system.

A “misconfiguration” of the web server hosting the site led to the homepage displaying an index of all the files hosted on it, including what appeared to be a number of databases, back-ups and log-in credentials.
