The victim is responsible for customs and border protection in Australia. They operate a cargo system that monitors and manages the flow of goods in and out of the country.
According to sources, in 2012, a cyber intrusion occurred within the Australian Custom and Border Protection cargo system. An individual gained unauthorized access to the system, allowing them to monitor the movement of specific cargo items.
Utilizing the unauthorized access, the individual could discern when certain containers were flagged by the system as suspicious. This knowledge enabled the attacker to smuggle drugs into the country, as they could abandon containers marked for inspection, effectively evading detection by the authorities.
