An online dating company has been slammed by Australia's privacy commissioner after it breached privacy laws, with hackers accessing the personal information of about 254,000 Australians.
An 'own motion' investigation by the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner has found that Multicard - one of the companies that process applications for Maritime Security Identity Cards - had unlawfully disclosed applicants' personal information.
Not surprisingly the ACMA has found that last year's bungle by Telstra that exposed the details over 700,000 customers to public view on the Internet breached the Telecommunications Consumer Protection (TCP) Code, but the current code does not enable it to impose any penalty on Telstra.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
