Australian Information Security Incident Reported: September 07 2018

Access to tens of thousands of files published online by the Victorian Government has been removed amid controversy over the release of Victorians’ personal data included in the document dump, which reportedly includes private information about the mother of Hollywood brothers Chris and Liam Hemsworth.

The woman’s medical history, home address, bank balances, details of her share portfolio and superannuation account and her daughter’s name and date of birth were included in 80,000 pages of documents that were tabled in Parliament and posted online this week.
