Two gardener quadruplets used a sophisticated exploit to gain access to hundreds of women’s personal details, a report says



A gardener’s quadruplets have been exploiting the same kind of privacy breach in a bid to gain advantage over their rivals, a top security researcher has warned.

Key points:One gardener used a tool called synapse to gain control of thousands of women, the security researcher claimsTwo gardener families have been targeted by the same exploitThe gardener, whose name has been withheld to protect his identity, said he had seen a pattern in the exploitationThe gardner’s family is a member of a well-known security team and they were targeted in the same way The gardener was targeted because of his family’s history of security breaches, security researcher Anthony Gardener said on Friday.

Gardner, who runs a security consultancy called the Secure Computing Group (SCG), said he was told by the families of one of his clients that their families had been targeted in a similar way.

“It’s not just one family,” he said.

“There’s two families.

They’ve been targeted twice.

I think that’s indicative of a pattern that’s developed over time.”

The gardners, both men in their early 50s, have been identified as brothers Michael, 40, and Andrew, 37, by security researchers, who have published details of the attacks.

They also share the same name, although Michael is not a member.

Security researchers have also found evidence of a group of gardener family members working together in a “sensationalistic” way, which they said could have been exploited by attackers who had a particular interest in women.

“I can’t see any pattern here.

It’s not like this is just one of those family groups, it’s multiple,” Gardner said.

He said he could not speak to the identity of the families because the families have not been named.

“What we can do is to point you towards other people who are part of the same family and see if we can identify their relationships to each other,” Gardener told reporters in Canberra.

“If we can, we can see that this is something that we’ve seen happening more and more in recent times.”

Gardener said he believed the gardener brothers were “very interested in women”.

“I don’t know why, but it’s certainly not because they’re going to be in a relationship with a woman, I think it’s because they want to get access to their own women’s data and make them look good,” he added.’

We’re all vulnerable’The SCG has already published details on several of the gardners attacks and has identified the same type of data-grabbing technique that has been used in the attacks against the families.

“One family member had access to more than 50,000 personal details,” Gardler said.

The SCg’s research suggests the families were targeted because they are members of a family known for their high profile security breaches.

“They are all in a family with an impressive history of breaches,” Garder said.

It’s too late’Security researcher Anthony Gillett, whose firm has previously exposed attacks by the Gardners, said the gardner family’s vulnerability was not surprising.””

But they’re not going to do it because they need to, and they’re also not going do it out of the goodness of their hearts.”‘

It’s too late’Security researcher Anthony Gillett, whose firm has previously exposed attacks by the Gardners, said the gardner family’s vulnerability was not surprising.

“The gardening families are very famous for being the ones who have had the most serious breaches,” he told news.com.au.

“And it’s really sad that they have had to take this course of action.”

Gillard said the families would be “very happy to cooperate” with security researchers in their investigations.

“We’re really very confident that we can get some good insight into what has been going on,” he argued.

“This is an opportunity to find out what was going on in these families, what their families have done, and if we’re able to identify any patterns that we see, we’re very, very confident we can work out what’s going on.”

At the moment, the families are all very much in denial about what’s been going.””

We know there’s been a massive breach of the women’s health database that we’re investigating, and we’re really hopeful we’ll find out something useful about what was happening there.

“But we know that we have to wait until we find out the full story.”
