Broadband flaw left 400,000 British homes open to hacking – was your router vulnerable?

More than 400,000 households were vulnerable to hackers eavesdropping on their web browsing habits and credit card details thanks to a flaw in equipment from a British broadband provider.

Hyperoptic, Britain's largest residential gigabit broadband provider, provided customers with routers made by ZTE, the Chinese company that last week prompted a security warning from GCHQ.

The flaw in the routers granted hackers total remote control of a home network if unsuspecting customers clicked a "phishing" link sent over email or social media.

Arthur Snell says Home Office defaults to refusal of citizenship wherever possible to make it difficult for applicants

A former British high commissioner whose baby son was initially denied a British passport after being born abroad, said it demonstrated a Home Office that defaults to refusal wherever possible.

"You cannot be more British than the British High Commissioner but he wasn’t British enough".
