Singapore State Courts’ digital files accessed illegally due to system loophole

Eileen Yu reports:

Singapore’s State Courts has revealed that several digital documents have been accessed without proper authorisation due to a loophole in a filing system.

The Integrated Criminal Case Filing and Management System (ICMS) was used in court for criminal proceedings and to support an Accused Person online portal. The portal could be accessed by accused involved in a case through SingPass, which was the country’s e-citizen account used to access e-government services and required 2FA (Two-Factor Authentication) login.

The State Courts said they were alerted to a potential system vulnerability on November 1 and, after investigating the matter, discovered 223 e-case files had been accessed by “a few accused persons” without authorisation.
