Aussies Beware Cyber Chief Predicts New Phishing Attack

Australians should on the alert for new phishing  attacks, following last week’s Facebook security breach, Australian Cyber Security Centre CEO Alastair MacGibbon has warned.

“Australians should keep a look out for any unusual activity from friends or family on their Facebook accounts,” MacGibbon said. 


“This is a timely reminder for Australians to be constantly wary of criminals seeking to exploit their personal information online.” 


Facebook late last week revealed that around 50 million accounts had been affected by an attack that leveraged a vulnerability in its “View As” feature.


The ACSC said it is working closely with the Privacy Commissioner to establish if Facebook has violated any terms in Australia’s Privacy Act.
