So they got a denial of service attack, well there are lots of them and there's not a huge amount companies can do about that. But it seems there was also an attack with some SQL code to get customer information. That should be easier to defend against but once again it happens now and then.

The inexcusable thing is that the Chief Executive doesn't seem to know if the data which might have been obtained is encrypted or not, how does that happens?

I'm with Plusnet and hope they have better security. :):

TalkTalk customers have had their bank accounts emptied after a huge cyberattack on the telecoms company, it was revealed last night.

Senior staff ignored a warning more than a year ago that online security was lacking, The Times has learnt.

Police are investigating a ransom demand from someone claiming to be behind the “sustained and sophisticated” attack in which the personal details of millions of customers are feared to have been stolen.


Yikes



Islamist groups are among the suspects.



Can't help themselves can they? :yawn: :yawn: :roll: :roll:

More likely to be the Chinese IMHO. Stupid TalkTalk can't even stop spam coming through, with recent incidents of hundreds of spam emails routed via China.

What do you expect with a CEO that's only one 'l' from a dildo?

paint your wagons and burn your banker, coz the twisted circus is coming to town and there ain't no safety net under the high wire.

How any company decides to store customer data unencrypted is beyond me :shrug: I mean, just why :confused:

I thought it highly unlikely that Russian moslems were involved. Smeggy. I am skeptical of news stories. Neither do I believe all terrorist attacks are a Zionist plot.
