Update: More than 90,000 South Australian public servants now involved in payroll data breach

Rory McLaren reports:

South Australia’s Treasurer says 13,088 current and former public servants more than previously thought had their personal information stolen in a cyber attack last year.

Treasurer Stephen Mullighan told parliament on Wednesday a “forensic review” by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) uncovered the additional people that had had their personal data stolen, in addition to the 80,000 employees announced by the former government last year.

The data, which included tax file numbers and bank account details, was stolen when the state government’s payroll provider, Frontier Software, was hacked in November.
