TalkTalk Fined £400,000 for Cyber Attack

TalkTalk Fined £400,000 for Cyber Attack

The Information Commissioner’s Office fined the Internet service provider £400,000 for the security failings which resulted in the company hack a year ago. The ICO decided that the cyber attack could have been prevented if the ISP had taken basic steps to protect customers’ data. As a result, the personal information of over 150,000 TalkTalk customers leaked, including sensitive financial data for more than 15,000 people.


It was found that the attacker used the technique called SQL injection, which has been well known for almost two decades. Since this method of breach is well understood and defenses exist, the ISP had to realize it posed a risk to its data. The ICO has the right to fine companies up to £500,000 for serious breach of data protection obligations, which means that TalkTalk’s fine was almost the maximum. Besides, the ICO can require repeat offenders to take particular steps to prevent a re-occurrence. Previously, the ICO fined Prodial, a spam-calling company responsible for over 46 million automated nuisance calls, £350,000.

Daniel Kelley, 19, was charged with hacking TalkTalk in September 2016. The defender appeared at the court accused of demanding 465 Bitcoins, (£200,000) from the ISP after allegedly carrying out the attack. The information was stolen from an underlying customer database through an attack on 3 vulnerable webpages in the inherited infrastructure. TalkTalk was accused of failing to properly scan this infrastructure for possible threats, especially after being hacked twice before that: its customers were hit by India-based scam calls in December 2014 and in February 2015.

No avatarActually, the fine wasn't almost the maximum. There is £100,000 difference - about 20%. Almost the maximum would be about 490,000 or above.
