Hacker Steals Bank Statements off of Fuji Xerox Print Server
Reuters reports that police and Standard Chartered Plc of Singapore announced that bank statements for some 650 private banking customers were found on the laptop of an alleged Web-site hacker in Singapore.
Standard Chartered said the February 2013 monthly statements for 647 of its clients were stolen, taken from a Fuji Xerox server; Fuji Xerox provides printing services to the bank.
The laptop belongs to James Raj Arokiasamy, who is in custody in after he was charged last month under cyber-security rules for allegedly hacking into a local government Web site.
The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) said it was aware of the matter and is investigating. “We will review SCB’s (Standard Chartered Bank) investigation report and consider if regulatory action against the bank is warranted,” the central bank stated.
In a press release, Fuji Xerox Singapore stated that it’s taking all appropriate actions to protect the integrity of its other server systems, and has also appointed a forensic team to conduct a thorough review together with authorities. It also reports that no other customers’ data has been affected by this theft.
