More reports from: SMH – The Sydney Morning Herald.

On Monday Perth-based Primus Realty emailed 750 of its clients warning that tenancy application information collected via its website from March 2018 to December 12, 2019 may have been made public.

The information could include sensitive identifying information such as names, birthdays, addresses, telephone numbers, driver licences, passports, birth certificates and even Medicare numbers.

Worryingly, financial documents may have also made it online including credit card details, bank statements, proof of income and bills.
