MOSCOW, December 3. /TASS/. The Bank of Russia (central bank) has disclaimed the reports hackers stole two billion rubles ($30.8 million) from its correspondent accounts.
"The reports about stolen two billion rubles from the Bank of Russia’s correspondent accounts in a hacker attack are not true to life," the regulator’s press service told TASS on Saturday. "The review of financial stability, which was presented on Friday evening, the Bank reported the losses commercial banks and their clients suffered in hacker attacks during the year 2016."
Earlier, CNN reported hackers had stolen two billion rubles from correspondent accounts at the Bank of Russia, adding the attempts were to steal five billion rubles.
On Friday, the Bank of Russia reported the attacks in early 2016, when hackers attempted using false logging information. The attempts to steal 1.67 billion rubles were repelled.
On December 1, at an AntiFraud Russia conference, head of the Bank of Russia’s department for monitoring and reaction to computer attacks, Dmitry Frolov, said in 2016 banks have reported to the regulator the damage of 5,2 billion rubles in attacks on their e-banking systems.
