Information retrieved included dates of birth, passport and driver’s license numbers, and addresses.

However, as 7NEWS can now understand, the hackers published 10,000 private data sets on Tuesday.

The hackers have warned that this would continue any day until a $1.5 million extortion fee is paid.

It comes as Australian law firm Slater and Gordon are exploring the possibility of a class action lawsuit against the telecom company.
