The Internet’s Best, Worst & Funniest Reactions To Optus’ Horror Data Leak

The Internet’s Best, Worst & Funniest Reactions To Optus’ Horror Data Leak

Optus is currently grappling with losing millions of customers’ data, and the internet is currently grappling with an influx of Optus memes.

It’s a huge crisis for the telecommunication company, and it could mean plenty of customers face issues with identity theft as everything from medicare numbers to license numbers was caught up in the data leak.

Naturally, there’s a lot to be mad/sad about. However, the internet isn’t a place for such sadness. It is a place for memes, jokes and cutting remarks, and B&T has compiled the most noteworthy reactions for your reading pleasure or displeasure – depending on your sense of humour.

The Chaser quickly made a few quips and even pulled a stunt. The comedy group placed an Optus sign outside an Optus store that read, “Huge Optus GiveAway! Free Data on all our customers. Valued at $3 million.”

Naturally, from there, the internet went absolutely wild with memes.

There aren’t just memes; Twitter went wild when the Optus hacker demanded over a million in ransom and then eventually promised he wouldn’t leak any more data.

 

Optus will have to do the most to win over the internet again.

Alas, 10's Gladiators has gone as quickly as it came. Should make for a very wild garage sale, however.
