Really? TalkTalk Hacked By a 15-Year Old !

Hi all,

It only took a 15-year-old boy to hack the mobile operator TalkTalk which put the banking details of millions of people at risk. He has now been arrested in Northern Ireland.

The boy was arrested after a search warrant was executed by the Northern Ireland police service, working with the Met’s cyber crime unit, at an address in County Antrim. He was arrested on suspicion of Computer Misuse Act offences, said the Metropolitan police.

The boy is being held at a police station ahead of an interview while the search at the property is still going on.

It has been confirmed by TalkTalk that the banking details of over four million consumers may have been stolen following the cyber-attack launched against its website.

The firm later revealed that it had been contacted by the perpetrators of the fraud demanding a ransom in return for the hacked data and a moratorium on future DDoS attacks.
