Before the flash of TalkTalk, the UK government and the US government made a new program and plan for the Internet service provider to store all the users browsing history for up to one year, the government asked to store the list of users’ identity, and the sites and services they are visiting must be recorded by Internet Service Provider itself.
In the UK’s history, TalkTalk has better optimized the huge data breach. The government has applied the plan of storing the browsing history of every user. Just after one week, TalkTalk was hacked.. so here is the point, if an Internet Service provider started storing users’ internet browsing history, then it would be quite easy to find out the connection point related to TalkTalk, but, unfortunately, the Internet Service Provider has till the hacking day has not set up their system recording program.
Internet Provider Secretly Keeping Your Browsing History
The investigator has not yet found the main culprit behind the TalkTalk hack, but soon after Major Breach into the Internet Service Provider, the overall media just investigated how does this happen; none of them disclosed that the hack was made soon after the announcement by the government to Internet Service Provider to record users browsing history.
It isn’t clear whether this has any connection with an announcement. Still, perhaps the government, in a conference meeting, asked ISP to follow the as repeated previously, the recording history will act as a war against all Internet users, the Internet users will act against the government plan, and maybe it goes wrong situation to handle.
The government in the US and the Uk both asked their respective Internet service provider to do the following. And this has almost started with some ISP recordings of every site, application, or internet-related service. The recording related to the report of making actual propaganda regarding the user’s interest and the daily visit sites; the government wanted to know whether users were visiting porn sites, financial sites, or any restricted sites. Basically, sensitive sites are targeted more by the ISP.
For now, TalkTalk company suffering from a huge hacking attack needs some evidence, and for that, the government has started analyzing the contacts of every user; it also knows the attack was ‘significant’, which led to millions of customers’ personal data breach in the unknown people hand. Later, the company executives admitted that the company might not have taken full precautions for the uncertain security breach, and the TalkTalk department has ambushed all the responsibility.
It will not be so important whether following government rules will lead to hackers. Still, to prevent these types of attacks or at the time of evidence and investigations, the ISP is helpful for the browsing history record they keep. It would be perfect if they also kept their data secret; otherwise, it would not take much time for another breach, which will take place with the Internet Service Provider system.
