On Monday, February 4, the world learned of a large-scale data breach involving approximately 4,600 bank executives. The hacktivist group, known as "Anonymous”, claimed responsibility for this incident and posted data publicly on the Internet. It has since been confirmed that the publicized information was obtained from the Federal Reserve’s Emergency Communications System (ECS).
Included in this breach was not only public bank and executive information, but sensitive information including cell and home phone numbers, user accounts, hashed passwords with salts, bank and personal email addresses, and external IP addresses. What does this mean for the institutions that were included on this list? What does this mean for financial institution information security in general?
