A 15-year old boy has been arrested in relation to the hack of a U.K. phone company which was feared as one of the U.K.'s biggest ever cybersecurity attacks.
The child, from County Antrim, Northern Ireland, was released on bail until November on Tuesday morning.
After the hack of the company was announced, which potentially compromised the data of close to four million customers, experts speculated that a large criminal organization was behind what the company called a "significant and sustained cyber-attack". On Tuesday, police were searching a house in the Ballymena area of Northern Ireland, where the child was arrested on suspicion of breaching the Computer Misuse Act. The 15-year old was being questioned in Antrim police station.
