In what looks like Australia’s third major data breach in three months, 375 gigabytes worth of employee and customer data have been stolen from Australian real estate giant LJ Hooker. The stolen information included passport scans, credit card details and loans data. The hack group has so far published passport details of staff members along with login details to social media accounts. LJ Hooker confirmed that at least one of its office has fallen victim to the data breach, with the company taking steps to protect the data of its customers from further breaches. More details are available on the VICE article written by John Buckley.
