This is the largest fine that ICO has ever imposed, getting close to the commission's maximum fine of £500,000. TalkTalk has revealed that the attack has already cost the company £42 Million and has cost the company 101,000 subscribers.
Good, they're a terrible company, I hope they go bankrupt and get shut down. They've always been rubbish, crap service, crap support, crap everything. Sooner they go under the better.

Amen. My folks used to use TalkTalk. Now after this fiasco Mum has had her card details stolen and we used to get countless phone calls from "TalkTalk" scammers.

I actually listened to the guy and pretended to do everything he said, the man was trying to gain control of my PC. Lol.

Only 400k?

What the hell, they should have been fined at least 1 million. Just because of the cold calling and scammers that are now hounding all the customers.
