Up to 200,000 students and staff of the Australian National University have had personal data stolen in a “sophisticated” cyber attack that echoes a similar breach last year attributed to the Chinese government.

The university has admitted the hackers stole data stretching back 19 years that included bank details, passport information and academic records of current and former students and staff.

“Depending on the information you have provided to the university, this may include names, addresses, dates of birth, phone numbers, personal email addresses and emergency contact details, tax file numbers, payroll information, bank account details, and passport details. Student academic records were also accessed.”
