Swift bank transfer system

Second bank hit by ‘sophisticated’ malware attack, says Swift

Swift, the global financial messaging network that banks use to move billions of dollars every day, warned on Thursday of a second malware attack similar to the one that led to February’s $81 million cyberheist at the Bangladesh central bank.

The second case targeted a commercial bank, Swift spokeswoman Natasha de Teran said, without naming it.

Swift said in a statement that the attackers exhibited a “deep and sophisticated knowledge of specific operational controls” at targeted banks and may have been aided by “malicious insiders or cyber attacks, or a combination of both”.
