There is a Major Security Breach with Telstra Bigpond Internet Service.
This was reported by a Whirlpool forum Member.

Telstra responded by shutting down the bigpond network to fix this.

Telstra have not disclosed the breach to its customers, they simply sent an appology email for the service dropouts last weekend.

You have been warned.
Change your Passwords Immediatly to be on the safe side.

The Australian Government is now involved.
