Nepal Rashtra Bank and 13 commercial banks have claimed that they were dealt hacking threats from unknown sources on Wednesday.
However, they allayed the fears by stating that their security systems are strong and customers had no reason to fret.
“Unidentified people emailed and telephoned us, but we tested all of our systems as well as those of other banks to find that everything is okay,” NRB Governor Maha Adhikari said.
Nabil Bank, a Nepali commercial banking institution, received a mail loaded with a threat that stated that his bank systems would be hacked. The CEO of the bank, Anil Shah, informed the central bank about the mail and its threat.
Anil stated that the bank’s systems were reviewed, and no gaps were found in the systems.
The other banks which received such threats were Rashtriya Banijya Bank, Kumari Bank, Nepal Bank Limited, Machhapuchhre Bank, NMB Bank, NIC Asia Bank, Citizens International Bank, Bank of Kathmandu, Sanima Bank, Everest Bank, Himalayan Bank, and Nepal Investment Bank.
