The Australian P&N Bank reported a data breach that exposed detailed and sensitive financial information on an unspecified number of customers.

Access was gained on December 12 to the bank’s customer relationship management system, which is operated by a third-party hosting firm, was undergoing an upgrade. Details on how it was accessed were not revealed, but P&N said once the breach was noticed the system in question was immediately shut down.

The information included name, address, email, phone number, customer number, age, account number and account balance. Additional pieces of what P&N considers non-sensitive data, such as interactions between the bank and its customers, was also located on the breached system.
