TalkTalk downplays extent of breach damage, gives extra details

If she's "only worried about our customers"...

Then why is she trying to minimise the breach:

Less than 1.2 million customer email addresses, names and phone numbers

That's 2-3% of the adult population of the UK, I'd say that was a significant breach.

As for the 15-20k poor beggars whose date of birth and bank account details have been spewed, that might be small number (of little people) for the Baroness, but it'd be quite a big crowd if they turned up at her office to have a word.

So, state of play on the past few months of data breaches in the UK:

TalkTalk = Incompetent wankers

Carphone Warehouse = Incompetent wankers

British Gas = Incompetent wankers

All other companies = ?
