According to Sophos' Graham Cluley, the job site RecruitIreland.com was recently hit by a security breach.

"The site, which claims to add 350 new users each day and email a newsletter to 170,000 registered job candidates, warned that some clients were already receiving spam that tried to recruit them as mules to transfer funds on behalf of fraudsters, Sophos reported," writes The Register's Dan Goodin.


"RecruitIreland has informed the Data Protection Commissioner and Gardai of the breach," Goodin writes. "Exposed information was limited to users' first and last names and e-mail addresses, the company said."
