Deutsche Bank is one of the 30 most important multinational banks according to the Financial Stability Board. It owns commercial, mortgage, investment banks, leasing companies and other companies and serves 28 million customers through a network of 1,891 branches, as well as branches and representative offices in 59 countries. The Bank is the largest participant in the foreign exchange market, attaches great importance to investment activities and the issuance of its own securities. Since 2011, it has been one of the globally systemically important banks.
On their Telegram channel, hackers from the 0x dump group claim that they allegedly managed to gain access to 21,000 workstations and 16 terabytes of valuable Deutsche Bank data. They are ready to sell direct access and data for 7.5 bitcoins (about $156,000). Some experts suggest that the same group that previously hacked into Medibank systems is behind the possible cyberattack. But this may not be the case - the broker of the initial access could give access to the network, and the hackers themselves were already involved in the theft of data.
Recall that at the end of October, Medibank confirmed the data leakage of all its customers. At that time, an internal investigation into the attack showed that the attackers had collected much more customer data than originally thought.
