The Victorian Department of Education has announced that it has accidentally published on its website the information of up to 115 families who submitted comments on proposed regulations for state schools, ZDNet reports. Data that was up for part of the past weekend included information on a domestic violence case and student absence due to self-harm, the report states. While the DoE said it was "very sorry" about the incident, it didn't elaborate on its cause and said it was conducting an independent investigation to discover how it happened. "The department took immediate action to take the submissions down as soon as the breach was discovered," a spokesperson said. "We understand the seriousness of this incident, and we are contacting those affected to apologise directly."
