Seventeen-year-old sentenced for 2015 TalkTalk hack

A 17-year-old who admitted illegally hacking communications company Talk Talk last year was sentenced to a 12-month rehabilitation order on Tuesday. Talk Talk was subsequently fined 400,000 pounds for insufficient security that allowed customer data to be accessed. "This case involved the deliberate exposure of a security issue on the Talk Talk website which is used by thousands of people every day," said Laura Tams of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) on Tuesday.
