Ecommerce site Tesco has been forced to pull all of its ecommerce listings from Australia’s most popular shopping site because of a security breach.

The retailer said it was aware of the breach, which was discovered by a security researcher on Friday, and has begun the process of removing all of the products it currently sells in Australia.

“The breach was discovered when a security analyst attempted to open an account on Tesco.com,” a Tesco spokesperson said.

“As a precaution, we have removed all products currently available on our site.”

The breach, first reported on Friday afternoon, resulted in the site taking down a number of the items it sells.

“We are aware of a significant security breach impacting our website,” Tesco said in a statement.

The Australian Cyber Crime Centre said it would be in touch with Tesco and other retailers to determine how to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.””

We are in the process to take steps to restore all products from our site and are working with our retailers to help them do so.”
