Two Canadian banks hacked in likely blackmail case

The apparent extortion attempt against BMO and CIBC's direct-banking brand Simplii comes after a string of major hacking incidents including Uber's attempt to pay off hackers and credit agency Equifax suffering a major worldwide data breach.
Simplii has since implemented additional online security measures such as enhanced online fraud monitoring.
Both BMO and CIBC said they will be contacting clients, and recommended that customers monitor their accounts and notify their financial institution about any suspicious activity. In the case of Simplii Financial, around 40,000 customer accounts have been affected, but numbers have not been revealed for the Bank of Montreal.
There is "no indication" at this point that CIBC clients are affected by the breach, Simplii's spokesperson said. Offering 24/7 access to online, mobile and telephone banking as well as access to a national network of over 3,400 CIBC ABMs, Simplii Financial delivers a simple and easy way to bank.
On Sunday, the bank received a claim from the alleged perpetrators that they had breached Simplii's customer data, and "began investigating to understand the claim and verify its accuracy".
Bank of Montreal reportedly said it believed the attack originated from outside of Canada and was confident that any vulnerabilities that led to the theft of customer data had been closed off.
Canadian lenders including Toronto-Dominion Bank, Royal Bank of Canada, Bank of Nova Scotia and National Bank of Canada said they haven't been targeted.
