PageUp IT breach story ropes in big transport firms
PageUp has had a security breech

Linfox and Australia Post have been swept up in coverage of long-standing human resources services firm PageUp’s IT breach.

The cloud-based software purveyor has just revealed a malware breach in its talent management system.

PageUp counts Linfox and Australia Post amongst its clients and features Linfox and subsidiary Armaguard testimonials on its website.

"We have been notified by third-party supplier PageUp that their job application system has been breached," an Australia Post spokesperson tells ATN.

"We are urgently seeking clarity from PageUp to determine if any personal information has been compromised.

"Australia Post has also notified the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) of the matter.

"Australia Post takes the security of data incredibly seriously.

"We are in the process of contacting job applicants to notify them of this incident and to advise them of steps to prevent any potential misuse of information. As a proactive step, we have also ceased use of PageUp's systems while we seek assurances from PageUp about data security.

"We are one of a number of large organisations that have been using PageUp."

ATN is awaiting a response from Linfox but Australia Post has shut down its careers website and has told applicants bank details, tax file numbers, superannuation details and other personal information may have been at risk, the Australian Financial Review reports.

"As part of our commitment to keeping our global community of users and partners informed, we wish to advise you of unauthorised activity discovered on the PageUp system," PageUp says in a customer alert and apology.

"On May 23, 2018, PageUp detected unusual activity on its IT infrastructure and immediately launched a forensic investigation. On May 28, 2018 our investigations revealed that we have some indicators that client data may have been compromised, a forensic investigation with assistance from an independent 3rd party is currently ongoing.

"We take cyber security very seriously and have been working together with international law enforcement, government authorities and independent security experts to fully investigate the matter.

"There is no evidence that there is still an active threat, and the jobs website can continue to be used. All client user and candidate passwords in our database are hashed using bcrypt and salted, however, out of an abundance of caution, we suggest users change their password."
