Australia’s second largest telco has responded to a major data breach, advising customers to update their passwords, move house, change names and take a new identity.

“We hope this cyber attack will not lead to anything, but to be on the safe side we advise anyone who has been an Optus customer since 2017 to change their name, gender, address and date of birth,” Qantas CEO Kelly Bayer said. Rosmarin said in a video message.

He advised to follow the common identity when updating the details. “We recommend that you choose a name and gender that you have not used in the last 12 months. Your new name must be eight characters long and include at least one number and an uppercase letter”.
