HSBC bank has suffered a data breach, allowing threat actors to gain access to some customers’ information including account numbers, balances, addresses, and transaction history. Unauthorized actors accessed user accounts from October 4, 2018 to October 14, 2018, likely through credential stuffing attacks. HSBC suspended impacted accounts after detecting the activity and will contact users via email or phone to assist them in accessing their accounts and changing their online banking credentials. The breach reportedly affects about 1 percent of US HSBC accounts. HSBC is offering one year of credit monitoring and identity theft protection services.
