Indian Banks cyber attacks: The India’s Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has warned the banks about the high possibility of the hacks during this time period. It said that the banks might be a target of hackers from the foreign locations.
The team has also sent advisories to the banks for letting them know about the malware creeping into their systems and possible breaches in the firewalls of their system.

Earlier as well, in the month of August, CERT-In had sent advisories to the leading banks as a breach of financial data was expected and possible attacks from Pakistan as an outrageous repercussion to the surgical strikes across the line of control.
As told by an advisor of CERT-In on Thursday, “Multiple vulnerabilities have been spotted in Adobe Acrobat and Reader which could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code and bypass security controls on the target system.”
The attacks on many of the Indian websites have also increased which are said to be as high as 7,000 coming from Pakistan after the surgical strikes. While many of the Indian sites have been attacked by the Paki hackers, many such attacks have been averted by the CERT-In.
CERT-In has also stated that more caution should be observed because the terrorist organisations first attack the banks and not only money is robbed but an even more grave problem is the data and other important information that they capture it.
The customers have also been warned about the possible attacks on their data, so around 6.25 lakh debit cards have been blocked till now.
