The hacking of TalkTalk has reminded us of the risks and compromises associated with the web, writes Yassamine Mather
On Thursday October 22 a hacker managed to bring down the website of the mobile/internet provider, TalkTalk and the company started informing its four million customers that some of their personal details (including bank accounts and credit cards) may have been accessed.
