Another theft from State Bank of Mauritius by hackers

Another theft from State Bank of Mauritius by hackers

In a gap of just two months, hackers through a cyber fraud in another bank in Maharashtra cleared 143 crore rupees in one stroke. In the Mumbai-based branch of the State Bank of Mauritius (SBM), hackers have broken into several accounts and carried out the thefts. The bank's branch is located in the posh Nariman Point area, where there are offices of several multinationals.

In August, the hackers cleared Rs 94.24 crore in Cosmos Bank, Pune. Now SBM has come on the target of hackers. Apart from SBM Mumbai, there are branches located in Chennai, Hyderabad and Ramchandapuram in Andhra Pradesh.

The Economic Offences Wing of Mumbai Police and Cyber ​​Cell have begun investigations on the details given by the bank. The bank is also conducting internal checks on its own, so that it can be ascertained that no external person has the hand. SBM said that this theft will not have any effect on the account holders.

According to bank officials, hackers hacked the server and accessed several accounts and transferred money to bank accounts located outside the country. The Nariman Point Branch of the State Bank of Mauritius is located on the 15th floor of the Raheja Center. This is the third major issue of cyber fraud in banks within 9 months. In February, 34 crore rupees were flown out of many branches of Union bank.

7 people were arrested in the Cosmos Bank scam. SBM Branch Incharge Prakash Narayan has refused to comment on this matter.
