The Vice Chancellor of the Australian National University Brian Schmidt released a statement today announcing that the university databases had been hacked by a “sophisticated operator.”

Up to 19 years of personal information from staff, students and visitors including addresses, bank account details, phone numbers, tax file numbers and passport details, were accessed by another unauthorised source in late 2018. The ANU detected the hack in May this year but did not admit to the breach until now.
