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.

Judge Dhir said the pair were "both involved in a significant, sophisticated systematic hack attack in a computer system used by TalkTalk".
"The total loss to TalkTalk as a result of this overall attack is estimated to be £77 million but the loss does not end there," she added.


I dont see any "hackers" in this story simply two chumps exploiting a weakness and trying to extort money, poorly it seems  :/
