On 21 April 2020, Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (SMCT) became aware of an email spam with the unauthorised use of the Bunurong Memorial Park name.

In response to this incident, SMCT conducted an independent investigation to immediately identify and implement measures for containment and eradication.

The investigation was led by an external forensic expert with advice and oversight from the Victorian Government Cyber Incident Response Service and IDCARE, with appropriate notification made to the Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner.
