Australia’s copyright collection agency is investigating a suspected cyber attack that has disrupted services for its more than 37,000 members.

The Copyright Agency, which distributes royalties to authors, photographers and other creators for the reuse of their text and images, notified members of the incident on Friday.

While it is not clear what was accessed in the incident, member accounts contain contact information and bank account details.

The Copyright Agency has apologised for the disruption, with work underway to restore access to services.
