Victorian families exposed in cyberattack targeting school students
Thousands of Victorian families may have had their personal data exposed in yet another cyberattack.
Hackers targeted PNORS Technology Group which is used by several state government departments, including the Department of Education and Training, according to The Sunday Age.
Sources told the Age data from the Victorian school entrance health questionnaire was included in the information stolen.
The health questionnaire included personal information including demographics, developmental and behavioural issues, and family alcohol or drug problems.
It was completed by families who start at all Victorian primary schools.
PNORS chief executive Paul Gallo said the extent of the data breach is still being investigated.
