Seen on The Australian, but not on News Corp Australia’s web site:
This afternoon News Corp Australia was made aware of a vulnerability in the security of our email newsletter database. Some personal information about people who subscribe to our email newsletters was potentially accessible from outside the company.
The information does not include credit card details or passwords.
We shut down the relevant systems promptly. The personal information then became inaccessible.
We have found no evidence of malicious access to the relevant information. We will continue to examine this question.
We sincerely apologise for what has happened.
We are investigating this matter thoroughly to ensure this does not happen again.
