About the only thing that seems to work is if you go in to all of your social media accounts and hide or remove your mobile number.
There is nothing that Telstra can do from a network level to stop these messages.
These messages are not sent by Facebook. It is Phishing attack and Telstra should look into preventing it. This is like old days before email providers were filtering email messages for spam and security reasons. It seems that text messages have reached the same level of missuses and need attention by Telcos.
Telstra, if one text message is sent to many users, it should raise some alarm in your security department and be sorted.
I would disagree as, without proof, this is very bold statement. I do have my number registered against my Facebook account as part of Two factor authorisation. It is not shared anywhere even with any of my Facebook friends.
I do not need to prove it - it has been proven already - just do your diligence and search the net (Google anyone?)... Facebook leaked more than just your mobile number and not only once!!!
