TalkTalk hack attack: Friends jailed for cyber crimes
Two friends who took part in a £77 million hack on the TalkTalk website have been jailed. Matthew Hanley, 23, and Connor Allsopp, 21, both from Tamworth in Staffordshire, admitted their roles in the massive 2015 data breach which affected 1.6 million accounts. Hanley, described as a "Dedicated hacker", shared details of more than 8,000 customers with Allsopp. At the Old Bailey, Hanley was jailed for 12 months and Allsopp for eight. "I'm sure that your actions caused misery and distress to the many thousands of the customers at TalkTalk," she said.
