ADFA hack alarm bells

The ease with which the private details of thousands at ADFA was pilfered is tantamount to a national security failure and warrants a thorough investigation.

The University of New South Wales (UNSW) Canberra College was hacked into on 15 November 2012 by a hacker known as Darwinaire who is associated with the Anonymous group. The incident has seen private details of thousands of staff and students at the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) pilfered in what is tantamount to a national security failure.

The relative ease with which the hacker was able to break in should set alarm bells ringing at  ADFA. Equally alarming is the anaemic response of those charged with keeping the information secure in the first place.
