Seems a bit of a waste, hacking TalkTalk...leave it a few months and it'll fall over/release customer details etc on it's own.
The fifth suspect to be arrested in connection with the megahack of TalkTalk last year has appeared in court today. Daniel Kelley, of Heol Dinbych, Llanelli, was arrested in Llanelli last November and arrived in court today charged with 14 offences relating to hacking, blackmail and fraud conducted between March and November …

Do you seriously believe the country purporting to be the no1 Soft Power in the world is able to be hacked by loners in their bedrooms?
Just look at how quickly the spooks moved to track down the bloke punting images from Pippa Middletons (sister in law to a future King) icloud account?
Govt/Military have a game play, down play the spying and capabilities because the public would not like the truth that the UK is in effect one giant panopticon, where your school records, NHS records, Bank purchases are all monitored in realtime. Some Big Businesses are little more than Govt agencies in all but name, just take BT OpenReach, the clue is in the name. money GDP is just one big carrot for the donkeys who dont know where the carrot/money comes from even though it keeps expanding ala BoE M4Ex.
Things is the spooks know the game is up, theres only so many co-incidences they can get away with before it becomes statistically improbable for occurrences to be anything other than spook work.
You just need to be observant and push their buttons like they push your buttons.

Coincidentally I received a "support" call from TalkTalk this morning. Apparently by computer has a virus. I only mention this as I was, for a short period, a customer of TalkTalk and my number is XD. Perhaps a coincidence. I would have done the usual half-hour wind up but I couldn't be arsed.

People who have Asperger's often think differently from the majority. That is what it is. It is not their fault anymore than someone can help being tall or short.
You seem to be thinking in the manner of a Procrustean Bed. That sort of thinking is both black and white, and highly divisive. It seems to be the cause of most of the headlines.
I would rather live in a world where the culture is inclusive and has inclusive laws rather than one that condemn minorities to exclusion and tribulation. There are better ways of doing things.
NB. I am not suggesting Asperger's is a get out of free card but its effects and the intent of the person involved must be considered. Things must be proportionate.
