What War would look like (General)

Speak of the Devil ...
Optus, one of the Big Two internet providers in Aus, had a national outage for over 9 hrs, due to: a deep fault. Biggest outage in Aus history.

Coincidentally - it happened as Albo was concluding his big-trip to Beijing to pay tribute to Xi. Just around midnight last night - Chinese time

That sounds like 'so what?', & this is pure conjecture, but: Optus was the same telco that leaked/lost all it customers’ data - current & past - about a year ago. Whereas in the Medibank hack there was a hullabaloo about The Russians - catching the criminals - all crap - to justify not paying - why pay for something we’ve already got? - with Optus, there was none of that talk.

In fact it all went deathly quiet. You’d deduce they paid. More intriguingly, there was also no talk of who was responsible. Except that it was from a foreign country.

Whereas naming the Russians played well with the Ukraine war - no one was game to name China. The fact they didn’t name China is proof in itself that it was from China.

As with Medibank it was a deep-system hack. Is this a case of: Now that we’re in, here’s an example of what we can do ... Whenever we want ...

Now slink back Down Under Albo like the obsequious grub you are & know that's only a taste of what's to come if you step out of line ...

Optus' response was transparent as mud - the classic we will learn the lessons & become even better ORGS going forward

CEO, Kelly Bayer Rosmarin : Not only are we working extremely hard to restore the services as quickly as possible, but we will also make sure we understand what occurred and prevent it from ever happening again.
