TalkTalk urged to improve cybersecurity in wake of 'worryingly easy' web system flaw

A hacker discovered a flaw in the firm's web system that could allow them to easily steal millions of customer login details.

The hacker - known as "B" - found a "Cross Site Scripting" error allowing him to take control of a convincing looking "talktalk.co.uk" URL, which meant he could potentially trick any of the company's webmail customers into thinking they were accessing an official TalkTalk website.

He then showed us through a secure demonstration how easy it would be to steal a victim's login details, and any other sensitive information, if he could get the individual to click on the link.
