Developments in the Optus breach.
Investigation of the breach suffered by Optus in Australia continues, and the US FBI is rendering assistance to the Australian Federal Police. Australia's Minister for Home Affairs and Cybersecurity called the attack "quite a basic hack," and criticized the telco for permitting it to happen, the Record says. For their part, the criminals have sought to increase the pressure on those being extorted by releasing some of the data taken, ABC reports. The hackers are also presenting some of the Robin-Hood schtick sometimes seen in other double extortion incidents: "Sorry too 10.200 Australian whos data was leaked" [sic].
