An investigation by a National Cyber Security Centre-Assured Provider of Cyber Incident Response services found no evidence of system compromise that would allow for exfiltration of candidate data from inside the Defence Recruitment System (DRS) itself.

The number of Army recruits, who had their personal data revealed on the dark web, is fewer than five.
