LandMark White has claimed it is the victim of a saboteur hellbent on destroying the listed valuation firm after it was hit with another data leak.

The company told the ASX that valuation and related commercial documents had been uploaded to international document sharing site SCRIBD.

"Someone is trying to destroy the company," chairman Keith Perrett told Nine Entertainment.

In a statement to the ASX on Thursday night, company secretary John Wise SCRIBD would removed all the documents offline within 24 hours.

"We are investigating this recent disclosure as an immediate priority and have identified that the documents mostly comprise PDF valuation documents and other operationally related commercial documents of LMW," Mr Wise said.

"We also confirm that these documents do not appear to have been taken from LMW through an IT related security breach but may be the deliberate work of an individual known to the LMW business."

Mr Wise said the company would work with law enforcement agencies and the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.
In a letter to clients, LandMark White acting chief executive Tim Rabbit said the leak "may be the work of an individual known to the LMW business".

"We are under attack," he said.

"This not a serious data breach.. it's sabotage and I hope the financial institutions will support a good Australian company that has worked incredibly hard to ensure our security systems are as goods as any in the world."

Earlier this month the property valuation and consultancy firm LandMark White revealed the initial data breach from their servers in February cost the company up to $7 million
