Australian Information Security Incident Reported: July 27 2018

Telstra customer stumbles across contact details of 66,000 fellow customers in a ‘private’ database.

A 63-year-old layman, who admits he isn’t a “tech-savvy person”, has somehow been able to access a Telstra database containing the contact details of their customers.

Robert Irvine has told 9NEWS he had an issue with his email and thought he might be able to fix it by logging on to his Telstra account.

Once he signed in, he put in the search term “email” and it returned 66,500 results containing names, addresses, email addresses and phone numbers.
