UK’s TalkTalk site hit by hackers
23 October 2015 | Alan Burkitt-Gray
Hackers have hit the website of UK telecoms operator TalkTalk, and the company has warned that all its four million customers’ personal and bank data could be at risk.
It is believed that the company was subjected to a distributed denial of service attack.
It was not immediately clear who was responsible for the attack, but a message posted on Twitter claimed to be from “a cyber-jihadi group” but also said it was based in “Soviet Russia” - more than 25 years after the end of Soviet rule in Russia.
