Teenager in Northern Ireland Is Arrested in TalkTalk Hacking Case.

The British police have arrested a 15-year-old boy in Northern Ireland in connection with a recent hacking attack on the telecommunications operator TalkTalk. The company, which provides fixed-line and broadband services to roughly four million customers in Britain, said last week that it had been the victim of a significant data breach, and that hackers who claimed responsibility for the data breach had demanded ransom. The teenager was taken into custody Monday afternoon, and the police were searching his residence as part of a criminal investigation, according to a statement from the Metropolitan Police.

Dido Harding, TalkTalk’s chief executive, confirmed on Friday that the company had received a ransom demand from a group purporting to be behind the attack, though other groups have also claimed responsibility. On Saturday, the broadband provider said on its website that the stolen customer data had been less sensitive than initially thought and did not include complete credit card numbers or customers’ passwords, for instance.
