PETALING JAYA: Regional job portal JobStreet.com is the first company to reach out to its customers, saying that it is one of the organisations affected by what is believed to be the largest data breach in the country.

In the company’s e-mail to its users, CEO Suresh Thiru says JobStreet.com’s own investigations have confirmed that some personal information pertaining to accounts created before July 2012 had been exposed.

The company advised its users to be careful if approached for sensitive information, especially if requested over the phone or by e-mail.

“When you trust us with your personal information, you naturally expect the information to be safeguarded, and our team is continuously enhancing our security measures for all user information stored with JobStreet.com,” Suresh said in his e-mail.

“This includes the password reset exercise in January 2017. Since passwords have been reset, your JobStreet.com account is secure.”

When contacted, JobStreet.com said it was unable to share more information because the authorities are investigating the incident.
