(Reuters) – Australia's securities regulator said on Monday that there was a cybersecurity breach on a server it used to transfer files including credit license applications where certain information may have been displayed.
The Australian Securities and Investment Commission said it became aware of the incident on January 15, even though it does not appear that the credit license forms or attachments were retrieved.
"While the investigation is ongoing, it appears that there is some risk that certain limited information may have been seen by the threatening actor," the regulator said in a statement late Monday.
The server has been disabled and no other technical infrastructure has been broken, ASIC added. . The same software was also used by New Zealand's central bank, which faced a cyberattack earlier this month.
Accellion did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment. Catalog
