TalkTalk Hack Makes Worldwide Headlines

In case you haven’t been following… last week, British telecom firm TalkTalk reported a data breach that affected approximately 3500 customers. After making the compromise public and facing some backlash, TalkTalk announced they had turned over the available evidence to BAE Systems (as well as local authorities) for further investigation. Some claim the breach is not as bad as originally thought despite extreme hype from the press. Late yesterday, Police arrested an Irish 15 year old in conjunction with the hack. The teenager was subsequently released on bail and few additional details have been made public.
