Australians' private government details at mercy of hackers, say IT security experts

Quote:
The private records of millions of Australians – including their doctor visits, prescription drugs, childcare and welfare payments – are at the mercy of cyber criminals because of flimsy IT security around a critical federal government website, IT security experts warn.

And they say the risk will increase from the middle of the year, when the government will make it compulsory for Australians to use the my.gov.au website to lodge their electronic tax returns, potentially also exposing their financial and banking records to hackers.

We have the same problem in the U.S.A. Over 3 billion dollars of thefts using the I.R.S. stolen records last year was reported.
This was on the radio for about a week warning people.

The next one will be the government health care; Obama Care.
Hackers heaven.
