Third-party payment app Get, formerly Qnect, has possibly been exposed to a data breach affecting more than 50,000 college students at schools around Australia, the Guardian reports. Names, email addresses, birthdates, Facebook IDs and phone numbers were all potentially exposed by the app, which serves 159,000 users and 453 college clubs or societies across four countries. A Reddit user discovered the personal information was accessible through basic application programming interface searches. "If we become aware of any specific information which has been compromised we will notify the organisations, their members and report a breach," Get said in a statement.
