General Advice and Guidance

The exposure of personal information such as name, date of birth, and contact details can heighten risks around scammer engagement. In fact, notifications about a breach itself can also heighten risks, as scammers can seek to impersonate the breached organisation when engaging with notified persons.

Remain scam vigilant by:

Assuming that communications you receive may be from a scammer.

Make your own enquiries using an alternative contact method to the one they used.

Never give remote access to your devices if asked by someone who engages you.

Keep your passwords and codes to yourself. Sharing these with scammers may mean you breach the terms and conditions of the account providers (such as your bank) and any chance of recovering funds highly unlikely.

Response Recommendations by Credentials

IDCARE has formed response recommendations relating to the credentials potentially exposed as a result of the Oracle CMS cyber incident. Oracle CMS has informed IDCARE that not all attributes were exposed for each individual impacted. Please refer to your incident notification for specifics on what information of yours was exposed.

Full Name and Date of Birth

Potential Risks

Individually full name is a low risk identity attribute, however in combination with other information (such as address and phone number) scammers engaging you may appear more legitimate.


You may see an increase in targeted phishing attempts via email, text messaging or telephone calls, where the scammer uses details specific to you (such as your name and date of birth for “verification”). For more information on phishing watch IDCARE's what is phishing video here -->

Never click on links in emails or text messages, no matter how legitimate they appear. Do not be pressured to respond, whether it is by email, text message or telephone. If you want to know whether an organisation tried to get in touch with you, contact the organisation yourself using contact details you know are correct.

Keep being scam vigilant and stay across the latest scams by regularly visiting, connecting with our social media, and subscribing to our free online newsletter Cyber Sushi. Another great resource is Scamwatch that collate lots of information and alerts about scams.

Physical Address

Potential Risks

For most individuals, physical addresses are considered low risk identity attributes. However, in combination with other attributes (such as your full name, date of birth, email address and phone number) scammers engaging you via email, SMS or telephone may appear more legitimate.

Reports made to IDCARE of cyber criminals physically attending a person’s address are very low. Most scammers and cybercriminals are not in Australia.

Some people can have specific concerns about the exposure of their address details, such as survivors of family and domestic violence or as a result of other personal reasons.


You may wish to discuss your concerns around physical security. You may engage an IDCARE Case Manager with these concerns, please book a time via our Get Help for Individuals Form.

Phone Number

Potential Risks

The exposure of a phone number can leave you open to being targeted by spam or scam phone calls.

These can appear to be from legitimate phone numbers with local area codes.

They often claim to be an authority or organisation, such as the police, a telecommunication company or a government entity.

The scam-caller may frame the call with a sense of urgency, either in order to avoid a penalty (such as a payment or fine) or to receive a reward (such as a discount).

Scammers may send fraudulent SMS messages to the phone number. These may impersonate a legitimate organisation and include a link to a malicious download or scam website.

Keep being super vigilant about scams, particularly telephone and SMS scams. Having a little bit of information exposed (such as your full name, address, date of birth, or phone number) can make the job of scammers much easier when convincing people about their deception.

Do not feel pressured to respond to a call or text message. If you think a call may be legitimate, hang up and call the organisation back using details that you know are correct.  Do not accept that it is the real organisation because the Caller ID shows their correct number or name – these can be “spoofed” or masked to appear to be real.

Do not download apps or software (such as AnyDesk or TeamViewer), follow technology instructions, or allow remote access to your device to someone who has called you.

Do not click on links in text messages. Instead, contact the organisation using details you know are correct.

If you think a call may be legitimate, hang up and contact the organisation yourself using contact details you know are correct. Don’t automatically accept it’s the real organisation calling you because the caller ID shows their correct number or name: they can be manipulated to seem genuine.

Email Address

Potential Risks

You may see an increase in email phishing attempts, particularly from scammers claiming to be from the breached organisation. These emails may include malicious attachments, links to fake websites or may download malware onto your device. They may encourage you to update or verify your details or to access a reimbursement via a link.

There is also the risk that your email address may be “spoofed” so that it appears to the recipients that the email came from you.

Additionally, there is the potential for extortion attempts, whereby a criminal claims to have access to your information and threatens to release it unless you provide payment. It is important not to comply with such requests, no matter how convincing they may appear.


Continue being super vigilant about scams and phishing emails. Having a little bit of information exposed (such as your full name, date of birth, email address or phone number) can make the job of scammers much easier when convincing people about their deception.

Beware of phishing emails, including those asking to update billing details, pay invoices or apply for reimbursements.

Never click on links in unsolicited or unexpected emails, no matter how legitimate they appear.

Do not be pressured to respond to emails. Instead, contact the organisation directly using contact details you know to be correct.

Use an up-to-date antivirus application that includes email protection and scanning.
