TalkTalk Customer Data At Risk After Cyber Attack On Company Website

UK telecoms company TalkTalk was hit earlier this week and potential effects of the attack are still being investigated. The latest claims by executives are that the stolen information is incomplete and would not allow access to financial accounts, but we’ll see.

TalkTalk said there was "a chance" data including credit card and bank account details may have been accessed. Other personal data could include names, addresses, dates of birth, email addresses and telephone numbers. The company has admitted "not all of the data was encrypted" but that "we believed our systems were as secure as they could be".
