Default Optus hacked, records of 9.8 million customers stolen

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-09-...rror/101468846

Except it wasn't human error. The db and API were purposely put on a network that was accessible from the open internet.

Oh, the "free market" will take care of security issues at Uber, Twitter, and every other major company

This isn't a result/consequence of the free market, this is rooted in crony capitalism, the corporatocracy.

It isn't a mass mailout, it looks as though they're notifying based on how much of a customers data has been exposed.

Uber hack

Uber’s hack shows the stubborn power of social engineering

Uber apparently hacked by teen, employees thought it was a joke
https://www.theverge.com/2022/9/16/2...als-powershell

Quote:
The hacker appears to have made themselves known to Uber’s employees by posting a message on the company’s internal Slack system. “I announce I am a hacker and Uber has suffered a data breach,” screenshots of the message circulating on Twitter read. The claimed hacker then listed confidential company information they said they’d accessed, and posted a hashtag saying that Uber underpays its drivers.

The Slack message from the alleged hacker was so brazen that many Uber employees appear to have initially thought it was a joke, the Washington Post reports. Employee responses to the post included lighthearted emoji like sirens and popcorn, as well as the “it’s happening” GIF. One unnamed Uber employee told Yuga Labs security engineer Sam Curry that staff were interacting with the hacker thinking they were playing a joke.

Optus are stopping short of saying someone within the organisation was paid by a 3rd party to make this happen.
