A second arrest was made in the investigation into the recent TalkTalk breach. Another teenager was arrested in the United Kingdom by Metropolitan police to be later released on bail until a later date.
The arrest of this 16-year-old suspect came just a few days after a 15-year-old boy was arrested in Northern Ireland. Both of them are accused of participating in the cyber attack, which prompted warnings from TalkTalk that the bank details and personal data of its 4 million customers may have been accessed.
The first boy was arrested on suspicion of offences under the Computer Misuse Act and taken into custody at the police station on Monday, with a search of his address being undertaken. The police also confirmed that officers also carried out a search at a residential property in Liverpool in connection with the cyber attack against the phone and broadband provider. Inquiries by the Metropolitan police and the National Crime Agency then continued. Residents described the first suspect as a “quiet boy” who moved to the area recently with his family.
The British company was hacked several days ago. In result of the hack, bank account numbers and sort codes may have been accessed, according to the security experts. However, TalkTalk emphasized that criminals would need more data to be able to steal money from the subscribers’ bank accounts, while the chances of achieving this were minor.
The TalkTalk is still unsure how many of its 4 million UK subscribers had been affected by the recent data breach, which appeared to be the third in a spate of hacker attacks affecting the broadband provider in the last 8 months.
