Queensland transport department email accounts hacked | ABC News (Australia)

Australian Information Security Incident Reported: March 14 2018

Overseas hackers breached the Queensland Transport Department’s cyber security network last year, before attempting to steal information from other government staff members.

The cyber breach occurred in December, according to details obtained by ABC News under a Right to Information request.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads holds information such as names, addresses and dates of birth, but it insists no sensitive information was released and there was a low risk any data was stolen.
