PNB data breach; 10,000 credit and debit cards and associated details affected: Report

It turns out that Punjab National Bank (PNB), which is currently reeling under the Nirav Modi fraud case, had also suffered a data breach, which affected 10,000 credit and debit card customers, reports Asia Times. The leaked data includes customer names, expiry dates of cards, personal ID numbers and CVV numbers. This data was available on a website on the dark web for at least three months, but it’s not clear if it was misused or not.

According to the report, PNB was not even aware of the breach till yesterday, when Singapore and Bangalore-based CloudSek Info Security informed them about it. The report also mentions that CloudSek was unable to contact PNB and that a government agency helped pass on the details to the bank.

We will update this story as more details emerge.
