SYDNEY, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Australia's largest telecoms firm Telstra Corp Ltd (TLS.AX) said on Tuesday it had suffered what it called a small data breach, a disclosure that comes two weeks after its main rival Optus was left reeling by a massive cyberattack.
Telstra, which has 18.8 million customer accounts equivalent to three-quarters of Australia's population, said an intrusion of a third-party organisation exposed some employee data dating back to 2017.
