Australia Post Site Breach May Violate Privacy Code
DATA LOSS—AUSTRALIAOctober 4, 2012
A flaw on Australia Post’s website may have breached the country’s privacy code, news.com.au reports. The flaw exposed the names and addresses of Australia Post’s “Click & Send” service customers, who were able to view the names, addresses and invoices of other customers by changing one or two of the digits in their six-digit shopper ID. “Customers who use the service have been notified via the online site,” said an Australia Post spokesperson, adding that the service has been temporarily disabled.
