[Breach List] – ANZ bank’s E*Trade – Jan 2012


February 27, 2013

AUSTRALIA’S second-biggest online broking business, ANZ Bank’s ETrade, was forced to shut down over the Christmas-New Year period by a ”malicious” cyber attack offshore.

The shutdown was prompted by thousands of emails bombarding the broking site, in a denial-of-service attack. The lockout was first noticed by ETrade customers trying to access the site overseas, as the bank shut off access to all overseas users. It is understood that, as risk assessments were performed on individual countries, access was restored.
