Dark nights are here.
I was going to see how many Hallow'een based puns I could fit in here, but it seemed like an awful lot of work. I thought I'd update you on that Talk Talk story from last week though. Turns out it was a 15 year old kid from Antrim and a some others from the England too possibly. But Talk Talk aren't completely without fault here. It appears quite a bit of the data wasn't encrypted. Although not legally required to do so, it smells a bit of sticking to the letter of the law instead of the spirit. Bottom line, if you hold consumer data on a system - encrpyt that database.
That's it for this week folks. Happy Halloween!
