TalkTalk Hacker Sentenced To Four Years
A man who was involved in a major hacker attack of telecoms firm TalkTalk has been sentenced to four years’ detention.
Daniel Kelley, 22, from Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, pleaded guilty in 2016 to 11 charges including involvement in the attack where the personal data of more than 150,000 customers was stolen.
Kelley will serve his sentence in a young delinquents institution.
He was sentenced at the Old Bailey on Monday.
Email address and bank details were taken after TalkTalk’s website was breached in 2015, with the total cost to the company from multiple hackers estimated at PS7 7m.
Kelley’s hacking offences also involved half a dozen other organisations, including a Welsh further education college, Coleg Sir Gar, where he was a student.
