Reply to post: Sustained???

Chaos at TalkTalk: Data was 'secure', not all encrypted, we took site down, were DDoSed

They are saying this attack was sustained. In which case how was the data stolen?

It looks to me like they were distracted by a DDoS, that is the sustained bit. Instead of pulling the servers, they were focused on that and missed the penetration. They handled it badly.

On another note. How do you DDoS a frikin ISP.
