The Site, The weste Australian News (thewest.com.au) which redirects to Yahoo is an local west australian based news site. The breach has been posted to pastebin and contains results from some basic SQL injections which have left the sites administrator and servers credentials leaked. Data has been accessed and obtained from the Archive sub domain of the main website (https://archive.thewest.com.au) which is its digital archive dating back to 2004. Leaked data contains user names and encrypted passwords. The breached server appears to be hosted on a amazon based server in Sydney, Australia and is owned and operated by Western Mail Operations Pty Ltd.
