More than half of the Internet applications of Russian Banks were not sufficiently protected. According to the research of Positive Technologies, attackers can view some programs and also edit the information in them.
Cybersecurity Experts analyzed dozens of applications. In their opinion, 61 percent of programs have extremely low or low levels of protection.
It turned out that every second online Bank (54 percent) allows attackers to make fraudulent transactions and theft of money. For example, scammers can spoil the number to which the auto payment is set up or steal the victim’s card number.
In addition, according to researchers, almost 80 percent of Banks carry out many operations without additional protection. You can transfer funds or disable the sending of one-time passwords without confirmation by SMS.
Earlier it became known that 85 percent of all ATMs are vulnerable to attacks aimed at stealing money. It turned out that Banks prefer not to update the ATM software, as it requires additional costs.
Information security Experts note that radical measures are needed to correct the situation.
