An employee of software firm Sage has been arrested in connection with the recent breach at the company involving theft of customers’ financial details, reports Fortune. The 32-year-old woman was detained at Heathrow Airport, but is currently out on bail.

The FTSE-listed company, which provides accounting and payroll services, reported the breach last week saying data of over 200 customers had been compromised. It was suspected to be an inside job because an internal computer login was used to hack into the office network.
