Loophole giving predators access to NSW school kids

A software glitch could be giving predators the opportunity to contact NSW school children.

The loophole allows someone to verify a student’s email address through Google Hangouts.

NSW public school students are also vulnerable due to the generic nature of their email addresses, which are usually just their first and last name.

eSafety Commissioner Julie Inman Grant has warned every state and federal commissioner about the concerning discovery.

Founder of Cyber Safety Solutions Susan McLean tells Ben Fordham the issue could extend to other states.

“I’ve been talking about this for probably close to 12 months.

“This is not just NSW, this is right around Australia.

“The Education Department has to dictate to schools that they can’t have this open system that’s totally searchable because you can lock it down to be school-based.”
