ONLINE hackers have stolen personal information from almost 6000 Shell 
customers in Australia and New Zealand.

Shell spokesman Paul Zennaro confirmed that 4500 Australians were 
affected when online applications for Shell fuel cards were hacked 
through a contractor's website.

"The information obtained is equivalent to what would normally be found 
on business cards and cheques - including company names, address 
details, email addresses and some bank account details," he said.

The hacking took place on February 14 with Shell becoming aware of the 
security breach three days later.
