TalkTalk Wi-Fi Router Passwords 'Stolen'

TalkTalk customers' wi-fi passwords have been stolen following a malware attack that blocked their internet access last week, an expert has warned.

The researcher said other details had also been taken that would let attackers pinpoint where the equipment was being used, making more targeted hacks possible.

Pen Test Partners' Ken Munro wants thousands of routers to be replaced.

But TalkTalk said it had not seen evidence to confirm the thefts.
