‘I have been big boob Scotty, that is my password since time began and I have to think of something new!’ 

‘We are live!’ her co-stars warned her, before Scott joked, ‘I have saved the hackers any work.’

Scott recanted the confession moments later, saying instead that it was her ‘licence plate’ not her password that she had disclosed.

It comes after a cyber-security expert warned Optus customers that they need to watch out for criminals impersonating them online after hackers potentially stole personal details from the entire telco’s client database.

Thursday’s massive cyber breach allowed hackers to access personal details, such as passport and drivers licence numbers, email and home addresses, dates of birth and telephone numbers, of around 10 million Australians.

Optus chief executive Kelly Rosmarin said the company was working with the Australian Federal Police to investigate the attack.

‘We are devastated to discover that we have been subject to a cyberattack that has resulted in the disclosure of our customers’ personal information to someone who shouldn’t see it,’ she said in a statement.

‘As soon as we knew, we took action to block the attack and began an immediate investigation. While not everyone may be affected and our investigation is not yet complete, we want all of our customers to be aware of what has happened as soon as possible so that they can increase their vigilance.

‘We are very sorry and understand customers will be concerned. Please be assured that we are working hard, and engaging with all the relevant authorities and organisations, to help safeguard our customers as much as possible.’

The telco's boss Kelly Rosmarin confirmed payment details and account passwords had not been compromised but admitted she felt'terrible' the breach had happened under her watch

She said customers’ payment details had not been compromised, but advised them to check their bank accounts for suspicious activity.

‘Optus has also notified key financial institutions about this matter. While we are not aware of customers having suffered any harm, we encourage customers to have heightened awareness across their accounts, including looking out for unusual or fraudulent activity and any notifications which seem odd or suspicious.’

Mobile and home internet, along with messages and voice calls have not been affected.

Both past and present Optus customers have been impacted.

Optus has been called out for waiting nearly 24 hours to tell close to 10 million customers their personal details had potentially been stolen by hackers
