University of Tasmania IT bungle leads to mass student data breach
Posted September 21, 2020
- Nearly 20,000 University of Tasmania (UTAS) students have had their personal information exposed to the entire campus after a major IT bungle.
- The mistake was blamed on security settings on shared files which were “unintentionally configured incorrectly” which had “made the information visible and accessible to unauthorised users”.
- UTAS said the data that was breached “is used to inform the ways the university supports students in their studies”.
