FRAUDSTERS CLAIM TO HACK TWO CANADIAN BANKS

Two Canadian banks have reported that they may be targets of a hack, after bad actors claimed that they electronically accessed personal and account information of a combined 90,000 customers. The attackers have asked for a ransom of 1 Ripple XMR from each, which translates to around $1 million Canadian dollars, or about $771,000 USD at time of writing.

On Monday, both Bank of Montreal and Simplii Financial (the banking subsidiary of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce) announced that “fraudsters” contacted them over the weekend claiming they had accessed certain personal and financial data from customers.
