A Nigerian hacker, Ihebuzo Chris has boasted that the walls built around Access Bank network are vulnerable.
The hacker who identifies himself as python on Twitter gained access and extracted the data of over 2,000 customers.
In a viral video, he showed the print out of the customer accounts, including their BVN, account numbers and other details.
He also in a way blew his own cover, an error that may easily make him a candidate for jail.
According to the video, Ihebuzor didn’t plan to steal money from the accounts, but just wanted to show that the bank’s computers are not impregnable.
He claimed that he could debit customers’ accounts without their consent owing to the information he has.
He added that he went deep into the bank’s computer without their permission.
He blamed the bank for loose security, saying he is not a staff and only a guy with a computer.
He claimed that Access bank already got in touch with him and said they could get in touch again for him to return all the details he possesses.
Reacting, Access Bank, assured customer of the safety of their accounts.
It said,“Criminals have posted pages purporting to contain customer account information. We’ve alerted law enforcement agencies and ask that you ignore the post. There is no threat to your account balances.
“Pls. continue to follow security protocol by never sharing your account details.”
