In May, a group aligned with Turkish nationalist movements known as the “Bozkurt hackers” leaked information from several banking institutions in the South Asian region. On 10 May, more than 100,000 records corresponding to the City Bank Limited financial institution, with its head offices in Bangladesh, were leaked via one of its Twitter accounts, @turkey_bozkurt . The information leak contained customers’ personal data, including their names, surnames, telephone numbers, addresses and e-mails. This group of actors have been involved in similar leaks in the past, in which credentials and sensitive information on users of various banking institutions were disclosed.
Our expert team concludes that poor security practices in the recovery questions of the affected e-mail accounts may lead to the exploitation of the leaked information, such as the holder’s full name, the date and even the names of relatives.» Descárgate el informe completo “Fuga de información de City Bank Limited”.
