london - When the cyber attack on the British provider TalkTalk won his bank details of around 20,000 customers. Furthermore, the hackers gained access to about 28,000 so-called hidden bank account and nearly 1.2 million e- mail addresses, names and phone numbers of customers. That the company said Friday.

This seems the size of the heel that was committed was less than initially feared on 21 October. TalkTalk held there at first note that data from its four million customers had fallen into the hands of criminals. The company stressed that the stolen banking data can not be used for financial transactions.

For computer hacking are now arrested two teenagers. On Friday it was announced that a sixteen year old boy from London has been arrested, while earlier this week, a fifteen year old boy was arrested in Northern Ireland. Both suspects were released on bail pending further investigations.
