ID, bank details, contact information at risk as cyber criminals hack PH Property Bendigo real estate agency

A regional Victorian real estate agency has fallen victim to a data breach.

PH Property Bendigo sent an email to clients yesterday afternoon saying a staff member’s email address was hacked on March 15.

The hackers managed to get past security protocols by the company that include randomised passwords, 2-Factor Authentication for all email accounts, and an in-house internet firewall security system.

The company said four months of data was stolen which could affect about 200 customers.
