Many Russian Banks have suspended or terminated cooperation agreements with the Unistream Bank after a hacker attack.
On November 19, Fincert warned that some credit institutions blocked all incoming correspondence from the Unistream Bank after sending malicious content from its legal e-mail address.
As it became known, the recipients of the “malicious mailing” were many Banks from its partners in Russia, as well as in the CIS. Foreign partners reacted harshly to the hacking of Unistream Bank— some banks from Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan suspended cooperation with the Unistream Bank. For example, Orient Express Bank prematurely terminated the contract on cooperation.
Some Russian banks have suspended cooperation for a while. However, some organizations, such as the Mail-Bank, didn’t see the reason to break contracts.
Representatives of the Unistream Bank deny the suspension of contracts with partners. The credit organization said that the investigation of the hacker attack is almost completed.
