Optus data breach prompts pincer movement of twin regulatory probes

Bubba Von Braun

By all means keep the name.. but details such as ID document numbers no.. Use to validate and then destroy.

One major electrical chain here (JBHFI) insists on photocopies your id document (in my case a passport) when you do click an collect. In my case I cancelled the purchase and then purchased the same item over the counter without them recording any ID information!

And yes I have been exposed by Optus and am still awaiting their advice on what documents have been exposed.
