TalkTalk internet down after company hit by same cyber attack that broke connections across the world

The Independent - Tech 

TalkTalk and other internet providers have stopped providing connections to users after being hit by a huge cyber attack. The troubled internet provider has said that it – along with the Post Office and other internet providers across Europe – were hit by the Mirai worm and had their connections taken offline. That worm is becoming increasingly dangerous. It was blamed for a huge internet outage earlier this year, and works by taking over a variety of unsecured internet devices and then pointing them at weak points in the web's infrastructure. This time it appears to have targeted a certain kind of router that is used both by the Post Office and TalkTalk, and so left customers of both companies unable to get online.
