    UK police arrest man suspected of Vtech toy hacking

    Police investigating the hacking of Chinese toy company Vtech have made an arrest in the U.K.

    In the attack on Nov. 14, someone gained access to information about Vtech customers, including names, email addresses, birth dates, photos and weakly encrypted passwords, the company said.

    The information was stored in a database for its Learning Lodge app store, used by many of the company's educational toys.
