Sky News Business Editor Ross Greenwood says the Optus hacker appears to have deleted the database containing the released customer data.
“Looks like the whole hacking incident is now over,” Mr Greenwood said.
“BreachForums has now come out with the alleged hacker dubbed ‘optusdata’, who now says there are simply ‘too many eyes’ on the situation.
“What they are saying here now is that they will not ‘sell’ the data to anyone.
“For whatever reason, the hacker has decided not to go through with their threat and extort Optus.”
