Infected email messages lead to a major breach in bank network security.

A series of cyber-attacks on the Reserve Bank of Australia have successfully hacked the bank’s networks and stolen sensitive internal information.
The perpetrator appears to be a malware virus developed in China. The virus invaded the bank’s networks in search of information on private G20 negotiations. The Australian Financial Review discovered that multiple computers were compromised during the attack which was spread via infected email messages.
The bank has now started taking necessary precautions by hiring a private security company to conduct penetration testing on its networks.
