Re: Talk Talk cyber attack in UK.

I was told both by the bank and talktalk to "keep an eye on my account" and be vigilant of "suspicious phone calls" requesting information.

Re: Talk Talk cyber attack in UK.

Hi,

if Talk Talk had unencrypted personal and financial information that could be accessed by simply hacking their web site then I hope they are sued/fined out of existence.

Honestly anyone using them in the UK should change provider immediately.

Have a good weekend
Martin
