SECURITY at the nation's biggest online trader has been exposed as wide
open to attack by computer hackers.
Security flaws at CommSec potentially endangered accounts containing
billions of dollars of mum-and-dad investors' money.
After a Herald Sun investigation, CommSec's 1.7 million customers have
been strongly urged to change their passwords.
Had any hackers entered the system they would have been able to access
the personal details of CommSec's customer accounts and trade in other
people's share portfolios.
