Hackers steal data from tens of thousands of Revolut smartphone bank customers | Abroad

Revolut has been subjected to a cyber attack, according to a statement from the British smartphone bank to the regulator in Lithuania. A spokesperson told TechCrunch that an unauthorized third party may have access to customer data for a short time. It is about 50,000 customers and people who have become customers, he told AFP.

The so-called “neobank” is active in Europe with a Lithuanian banking license. Revolut noticed the cyber attack in the late evening of 9/11 and was able to isolate the attack by morning. In communication with the regulator, the Revolut security team appears to act quickly.

The spokesperson did not want to specify how many customers were affected. But the contact with the bank’s regulator provides for the participation of 50,150 customers. The spokesperson explained to AFP that there are about 50,000 clients and customers in the pipeline.

Through a statement on Reddit, Revolut informs customers that no bank card data, PIN codes, or passwords have been stolen. Hackers may have evaded data about card transactions, names, addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers.
