UK police arrest second teenager over TalkTalk hacking
UK police have arrested a second teenager in their investigation of an attack on the website of telecommunications operator TalkTalk that may have exposed the personal data of millions of customers.
The arrest of the 16-year-old boy in Feltham, England, on Thursday follows the arrest Monday afternoon of a 15-year-old boy in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.
Both boys were arrested on suspicion of offenses under the Computer Misuse Act, and have been released on bail. Thursday’s arrest followed a search of homes in Feltham and Liverpool, police said. No arrest was made at the address in Liverpool.
