TalkTalk cyber attack: Hackers 'can't raid bank accounts'


Data stolen in the cyber attack on TalkTalk does not allow criminals to plunder customers' bank accounts, the company has claimed.

TalkTalk said complete credit card details are not stored in its system and that account passwords were not accessed.

"We now expect the amount of financial information that may have been accessed to be materially lower than initially believed and would on its own not enable a criminal to take money from your account," a spokesman added.
