Oxfam Data Breach

Hackers have breached an Australian charity’s cyber defences to steal personal details and comprising information of supporters from its servers, the organisation says.

Oxfam Australia has confirmed its databases were hacked by an external party in January.

Attackers were able to access files containing data on supporters who signed petitions, took part in a campaign or made donations or purchases.

While passwords have not been compromised, names, addresses, dates of birth, emails, phone numbers, gender, and in some cases donation history, may have been accessed.
