Hackers target UniCredit Bank

Hackers on Tuesday targeted the website of the Czech Republic’s UniCredit Bank, Živě.cz writes; the cyber attack is allegedly not related to similar incidents that hit Czech websites in recent days, targeting other sites such as financial institutions, media, search engines and telecommunications providers. The attack against UniCredit was apparently facilitated by an administrator’s weak password of ‘Banka123’. The hacked site “apologised” to clients for “losing all their funds”. The spokesman for the bank confirmed that the claim was false: no other areas – such as e-banking – were affected. The site is now running normally.
