A CYBER attack has potentially exposed the personal information of up to 8000 Family Planning NSW clients.

Including those women who sought abortion or contraception.

The reproductive and sexual health organisation sent an email to all of its clients apologising for a “cyber attack” which “may have compromised our online databases”, reported news.com.au.

“These databases contained information from clients who had contacted Family Planning NSW through our website in the past two-and-a-half years, seeking appointments or leaving feedback,” the email, signed by Family Planning NSW chief executive Ann Brassil and chair Sue Carrick, said.

“Since the attack, we have had no evidence that this information has been used by the cyber-attackers.”

The organisation has ensured the “situation is now contained” and “there have been no further threats”.

  • It’s very shocking that this can happen at this day


  • It should never be possible that such personal information is exposed !


  • This sort of breach is happening far too often.
