Several Pakistani banks came under cyber attack, consumers data hacked: FIA sources
ISLAMABAD – Several Pakistani banks data was hacked in a recent cyber attack, revealed the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) cyber crime wing on Tuesday.
Talking to a private news channel, Director of FIA Cyber-Crimes wing Captain (retd) Mohammad Shoaib said that several banks came under the recent attack on the Pakistani banking system.
He commented after Group-IB, a global cybersecurity firm specialising in the financial sector, claimed that hackers had put a new dump of Pakistani credit and debit cards in dark web markets for sale.
The director said that over 100 cases have been registered regarding the cyber attack, adding that the agency has also busted an international gang in October.
He added that the FIA has summoned the representatives of the banks in questions to discuss the prevailing situation.
Banks are required to make the cyber security foolproof, he said, adding that the banks are responsible if any data breach incident happened.
