Tasmania’s largest private sector employer has been affected by a cyber attack for the second time this year.

Federal Group yesterday made advance payments to staff after the payroll system it uses — run by global company Frontier Software — was affected by a “cyber incident”.

In April, the gaming and hospitality giant’s poker machines and hotel check-in systems were affected by a ransomware attack.

In a statement, Federal Group executive manager Daniel Hanna said the incident was outside of the company’s control and “not related to an incident that impacted Federal Group earlier this year”.

“Federal Group has not been advised of any breaches of personal information.”
