BigPond customers targeted by phishers

One week after major security breach

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Telstra’s beleaguered BigPond customers, who suffered a major security breach last week when customer details were leaked to the web, are now subject to a targeted phishing campaign.

Sophos reports that an email is doing the rounds urging BigPond users to confirm their billing information or risk the suspension of their account.

While the email campaign is a typical Spam-style, phishing effort, Sophos claim it may get more timely traction given the vulnerability of BigPond users who fear that their customer information had been compromised and thus requiring a validation.

Last week’s breach exposed the private details of around 60,000 BigPond customers. Telstra advised customers via Twitter affected customers would need password resets to reduce risk from the privacy breach.

Telstra has reminded users that it does not ask for logins via unsolicited e-mail. ®
