The commonwealth bank is one of australia's largest banks and to see a breach like this happen shows just how much of a serious problem the world is facing with security. The leaked data contains 1900 email addresses, encrypted passwords and full names being leaked online. It is unsure exactly who these accounts belong to but either way it proves that they need to have a decent look into the security of customers information. The hackers are fairly well known for the defacement's they have carried out in the past with this being one of the first database leaks from them.
