    It's the third time in 12 months but this one could be more serious.

    I find it ridiculous how gormless they (TalkTalk) appear, especially having been hit already twice this year!

    I have relatives who use TalkTalk and they would constantly point out how cheap their ISP was compared to mine. I wonder why they were so cheap? Perhaps they should have spent a bit more on security? I have been told that many people in Internet security predicted something like this with TalkTalk and the like.
