A 15-year-old boy who was arrested over an alleged cyber attack on TalkTalk has been released on bail, police in Northern Ireland have said.
He was held on suspicion of offences under the Computer Misuse Act, following a major breach of the telecoms firm’s website last week.
His home in County Antrim in Northern Ireland was also searched by detectives.
But a Police Service of Northern Ireland spokesman said on Tuesday that the teenager had been released pending further enquiries.
“The investigation being conducted by the Metropolitan Police Cyber Crime Unit, Police Service of Northern Ireland and National Crime Agency is continuing,” the spokesman said.
