An Italian Largest Bank “Unicredit” have been Hacked and stolen more than 400,000 Customers Sensitive Loan Details.
Hackers Steal the Loan information of Unicredit due to unauthorised access through an Italian third party provider to Customer.
Initial breaches occurred September and October last year and had not previously been disclosed.
The bank, UniCredit, said Wednesday that the hackers breached the system through an unidentified external commercial partner.
The bank also confirmed that no information to access accounts was taken: “No data, such as passwords allowing access to customer accounts or allowing for unauthorised transactions, has been affected, whilst some other personal data and IBAN numbers might have been accessed.”
According to UniCredit, the breach at Italy’s biggest Hacking attack was detected 10 months after the initial compromise.
Milan-based UniCredit said that it had closed the breach and informed authorities while embarking on a security audit that will likely tap into at least some of the €2.3bn budget previously allocated towards upgrading and strengthening its IT systems.
