Australian Information Security Incident Reported: January 11 2019

Fisheries Queensland has blamed a software bug introduced via an update for an incident that left users of its Fishnet Secure portal exposed over the break.

The Courier Mail first reported the incident on Wednesday this week, revealing that “fishermen attempting to log in discovered they could get in to any account on the supposedly protected portal without a password.”

FishNet Secure allows holders of Queensland fishing permits, licences and quotas to manage them online.
