FLORIDA BANK BREACH NETS ONLINE BANKING DATA

Source: Security Wire Digest

Posted on April 22, 2002

      A cracker managed to breach a Florida bank's firewall and steal the personal data of 3,600 online-banking customers. Officials at Republic Bank -- among the first in the state to offer Internet banking in 1996 -- discovered the incident a few weeks ago but kept it from customers until April 17.

      The theft came to light after the attackers contacted the bank, whose main Web site runs Microsoft's IIS 4.0 and is hosted by Advances.com of Fort Lauderdale. No accounts were accessed during the attack, the bank reports.

      The FBI is investigating and Republic Bank has contracted a team of security consultants to review its systems.
