News Site Experiences Second Breach
DATA LOSS—AUSTRALIANovember 10, 2011
After undergoing a similar breach in July, News Limited has suffered from a security breach whereby subscribers receive spam e-mails and may have had passwords exposed, The Sydney Morning Herald reports. Members were informed of the breach last week. The company recommends that users change their passwords, adding that it "may be an overreaction, and we apologise for the inconvenience, but we'd rather be overcautious when it comes to your privacy." The company has said that it is "further strengthening" its security to "minimise further risk."
