ATM security breach number has risen to 65 lakh as per the information given by the sources causing customers to worry even more as various banks have been hit by the malware infestation of ATMs.
Several banks have started taking steps to avoid any potential large-scale fraud and have requested their customers to change the pin by going to their bank ATM or take the new ATM card from the bank.
“We’d like to emphasise that SBI’s systems have absolutely not been compromised and existing card holders are not at any risk and can continue to use their cards. SBI is in the process of issuing new cards at no cost to those card holders whose cards have been blocked. This is a cards industry incident (not only SBI),” a SBI spokesperson said.
India’s biggest financial breach includes State Bank of India, Axis Bank, HDFC, Yes Bank, and ICICI as the worst hit banks.
