Kasikorn Bank and Krung Thai Bank said they had detected theft of customer information through hacking at their websites, adding that immediate actions were taken to close the loophole and the level of data surveillance and protection have been raised.
Kasikorn Bank’s president Pipit Aneaknithi said that on July 25, KBank found that 3,000 names of KBank’s corporate customers using KBank’s website for providing letter of guarantee (LG) service might be leaked.
As soon as KBank detected this irregularity, we immediately closed the loophole and increased the level of data surveillance and protection to prevent potential leak. Meanwhile, Krung Thai Bank also found the track hacking its customers information about loan application but it did not cause damage to its customers.
