Personal details of 80,000 South Australian public servants stolen in cyber-attack

The Guardian says Records including the name, tax file number and banking details of almost 80,000 South Australian government employees may have been stolen in a cyber-attack, with workers advised to assume their personal information has been stolen.

The South Australian treasurer, Rob Lucas, first disclosed on Friday that records of 38,000 government employees had been stolen in a cyber-attack, but confirmed the extent of the data breach on Tuesday.

The attack was carried out against Frontier Software, an external company that has provided the South Australian government’s payroll software for the last 20 years. It affects employees working for the government as of July last year, with only employees at the Department of Education excluded from the hack.
