Unauthorized access to customer information
The Australian part of the Singapore-based telecoms giant, Optus, is looking into a cyberattack that may have given hackers access to current and previous customers’ data.
She said that as a result of the attack, a larger number of consumers’ addresses and identification documents may have been made public.
The company states that its services remain safe to use.
According to Optus CEO Kelly Bayer Rosemary, as soon as the company learned of the attempt, “we took action to halt it and alerted law enforcement.”
The business declared that it is collaborating with the Australian Cyber Security Center to reduce the risk for clients.
The business claims that Optus services, including mobile and home internet, were not impacted and are still safe to use.
