The CT has this story on John James Hospital being phreaked by hackers last week ,racking up $5000 worth of overseas calls. Luckily Telstra told them to stop making international phone calls, which could be seen as not in the best interests of its share-holders. I doubt if the hackers were even using the 0018 cheaper international rates number, bastards.

Which is why insurance exists.

I’m sure that Telstra having to write off thousands of dollars owed to international telco creditors for bogus phone calls isn’t in shareholder’s interests either…
