Corrections Victoria has suffered a data breach exposing the information of prisoners. The breach has raised concerns that the information — including some prisoners’ bank details and names and addresses of family contacts — could be used to stand over or threaten inmates and their families.
This breach identifies how terrible prison systems are maintained that an inmate, without any black hat training, can hack and expose information. We don't blame the prison for not having these strict controls implemented during the construction of the prison, however, to not have adequate security in 2015 should be considered negligent and a crime.
The world may be evolving by developing smart cars and robots, but the systems utilized to engineer these products are not secure at all.
