Frontier Systems Ltd (t/a Voiceflex) v Frip Finishing Ltd

Contract – Breach. The claimant company, Voiceflex, provided services to the defendant company, Frip, under a contract. In October 2011, hackers hacked into Frip's computers and many phone calls were made by persons unknown. Voiceflex sought to invoice Frip for the calls, and brought proceedings. The Technology and Construction Court, in dismissing the claim, held that, on the evidence, Frip had not used insufficient security, and that, on the agreement between the parties, Frip had only been obliged to pay for the calls that it actually made.
