Ficora: Banks not compromised in massive security breach

Banks or Nets, a Nordic provider of payments and card information, have not been compromised in the massive online security breach that was uncovered last week, Jarna Hartikainen, a data security expert at the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority (Ficora), affirms. Instead, the user names and passwords of hundreds of thousands of Finnish and foreign users of Internet fora, services and content management systems were acquired by the hacker from Helsinki, who has confessed to the deed in police interrogations. “Mostly, this includes user names, passwords and hashed passwords. Some credit card information used on the discussion fora or services has also been detected,” says Hartikainen. Authorities have yet to reveal which online services were compromised in what the police have suggested is the largest ever data breach in Finland.
