Optus accidentally blocked bit.ly

Optus accidentally blocked all its users from accessing websites through the bit.ly URL shortener whilst trying to block a phishing email on Monday morning.

Ahhhhhhh…. whoops.

Apparently they’ve fixed it but the links could take up to 48 hours to start working again for some customers.
