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.
