Real estate listings portal Domain is warning users to be careful when trying to secure rental properties on its website after a cyber attack allowed an unauthorised third party to access personal information and demand deposits.
Domain chief executive Jason Pellegrino has contacted the Australian Information Commissioner and other relevant authorities about the scam, but warned users that some personal information – such as phone numbers and email addresses – may have been obtained in the attack.
The sources also said other real-estate portals were now looking into whether the scammer had hacked their systems, too.
