SG: Personal data of national servicemen and Mindef staff stolen in breach

AsiaOne reports:

The Ministry of Defence (Mindef) said on Tuesday (Feb 28) that the personal information of some National Servicemen (NSFs) and ministry employees were stolen after a “targeted and carefully planned” attack on one of its computer systems.


Mindef said that it detected a breach in its I-net system, which provides Internet access to NSFs and Mindef staff, earlier in February.

Following investigations, it was discovered that the basic personal data of about 850 NSFs and staff were stolen. This includes their NRIC numbers, telephone numbers and dates of birth.
