Australian Information Security Incident Reported: November 2 2018


Guests of two of Tasmania’s luxury hotels are warned their personal data may have been accessed, with the owner — casino giant Federal Group — telling people to delete emails sent from the resorts.

In a statement, a Federal Group spokesperson said it confirmed it “experienced an unauthorised access to a third-party email distribution service and some past guests received an unusual spam-type email”.
