HSBC customers hit by phishing attack

Internet users in the UAE are being warned to be on their guard following a massive phishing scam targeting HSBC customers there. The phishing attack follows a reported hacking attack on Emirates Bank and a fraud incident in Dubai, where criminals captured card data and PIN numbers from an ATM using a pinhole camera and ‘skimmer’ — a device inserted into a card slot to read data.

In the latest security attack to hit the region’s banking industry, a fraudulent e-mail claiming to have come from HSBC was sent to users entitled ‘HSBC UAE. Urgent Update’.
