Linux Australia suffers another data leak


Linux Australia has suffered a second leak of data from its servers, according to a message sent to its main mailing list by president Joshua Hesketh.
The umbrella organisation for Linux user groups in the country suffered a data breach in March this year.
Hesketh said a limited amount of personal information had been leaked as a result of the breach. He said it was not related to the earlier breach.
The complete details of how the March breach was effected have yet to be released.
Hesketh said the breach affected Linux Australia’s legacy wiki system which was being used by a small number — 0.5 per cent — of current and non-current members.
A community member had alerted the organisation to the leak. The website has now been taken offline.
