‘We have secured the two affected accounts and are conducting a thorough investigation’ ANZ
Air New Zealand is telling Airpoints members some of their personal information has been caught in a phishing scam.
While Airpoints accounts, passwords and credit card details were not accessed, the airline says some information relating to membership profiles may have been compromised.
The airline’s loyalty scheme has about two million members but the number affected is unclear.
Computer hackers have allegedly breached TAFE NSW’s payroll system and stolen bank details of at least two dozen staff, TAFE and a victim of the hack said.
“These credentials were used to access employee self service functions within the payroll system and alter bank details,” he told nine.com.au. “The attempt was discovered quickly and measures immediately put in place to stop fraudulent payments.
“TAFE NSW is working with Cyber Security NSW and the NSW Police Cyber Crime unit to identify the source of the breach and to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
