On 14 September 2017, a user's Newsroom was accessed without permission. The post was promptly removed and new security measures implemented. Although this was confined to a single Newsroom, we felt as an added precaution that it was wise to ask all users to change their passwords, which we did. We recommend, in general, that users change their passwords regularly and never share their passwords or use obvious words such as business or personal names, dates of birth or other easily identifiable information.

We have reported this matter to the Australian Government's ACORN service
