Australian Information Security Incident Reported: January 08 2019

Australian real estate network First National has reportedly had information it held on job applicants leaked online.

Allegedly leaked information includes the full names, addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, and other personal information — as many applicants list their education and previous employment information on resumes — of around 2,000 people.

First National has over 400 offices throughout Australia, New Zealand, and Vanuatu, but it is unclear as to how many places the alleged leaked information relates to, with the screenshots provided indicating the Burleigh Heads and Palm Beach offices in Queensland are allegedly affected.
