Hackers Steals 19 Years’ Worth of Data from Top University
The Australian National University (ANU) discovers that a “sophisticated operator” has managed to access 19 years’ worth of personal data belonging to current and former staff, students and visitors. The intrusion, which began in late 2018 and detected in May, affected an estimated 200,000 people. The stolen database included personally identifiable information, bank numbers, tax details and academic records. This is the second intrusion incident at ANU within a year. In July 2018, ANU had to fight off persistent threat actors who infiltrated the university’s internal systems.
