TPG Telecom has announced a breach of hosted exchange services that hold email accounts for up to 15,000 business customers from iiNet and Westnet.
Telekom announced that Mandiant “found evidence of unauthorized access” on December 13.
The target appeared to be “cryptocurrency and financial information” contained within accounts, TPG Telecom said in a financial filing.
Apparently, the incident was identified during routine scans of connected assets.
“As part of Mandiant’s ongoing commitment to support cyber protection, they conducted a forensic historical review and discovered unauthorized access to the hosted Exchange service,” said TPG Telecom.
“We have taken action to stop unauthorized access, further security measures have been put in place and we are in the process of contacting all impacted customers via the hosted Exchange service.
“The matter remains under investigation and we will be communicating with directly affected customers as more information becomes available.”
TPG Telecom said it had notified “relevant government agencies.”
She apologized to business customers for the incident. It was also said that private customers of the two brands were not affected.
