WASHINGTON, May 14. /TASS/. A group of Russian hackers was planning a cyber assault on major American banks, the online version of The Hill newspaper wrote on Wednesday.
The Washington-based newspaper quoted security firm root9B CEO Eric Hipkins as saying the hacking group, APT28, was aiming to hit international financial institutions, including Bank of America and TD Bank in the United States.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) Bank, United Nations Children's Fund, United Bank for Africa and Regions Bank were also on the list of possible targets, the newspaper said.
"We've spent the past three days informing the proper authorities in Washington and the UAE, as well as the [Chief Information Security Officers] at the financial organizations," said Hipkins. He said it was the first instance when such an attack had been dissected before occurring.
"In previous instances, attacks have been dissected after the event," Hipkins said.
