TalkTalk: Hackers may have nicked personal, banking info on 4 million Brits

role of the media

Talktalk CEO just interviewed on BBC R4 "Today" programme. She gave the impression that they are responding immediately to this hack, and that they have not had enough time to ascertain any details (not even enough time to know if their customers' data was encrypted!). And yet the BBC interviewer never challenged that the same thing happened to tens of thousands of their customers OVER TWO MONTHS AGO in August, and Talktalk are STILL saying on their website (about the August hack) "It is too early to say exactly..." etc.
