The mass blocking of the websites occurred when ASIC blocked an IP address, with the other websites also hosted on the IP address

It was recently revealed there are three government agencies using section 313 to block websites - the AFP, ASIC and an unnamed third agency under the Attorney-General's portfolio, which it has refused to disclose the identity of.

The Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE) is currently looking into improving transparency around the use of section 313 of the Telecommunications Act.
