Second Bank hit by Malware attack similar to $81 Million Bangladesh Heist

May 13, 2016
SWIFT, the global Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications, warned on Thursday of a second malware attack similar to the Bangladesh central bank hack one that led to $81 million cyber heist. In February,  $81 Million cyberheist at the Bangladesh central bank was carried out by hacking into SWIFT, the global financial messaging system that thousands of banks and companies around the world use to transfer billions of dollars every day. However, the hackers behind the cyber heist appear to be part of a comprehensive online attack on global banking and financial infrastructure. The second attack involving SWIFT targeted a commercial bank, which the company declined to identify. SWIFT also did not immediately clear how much money, if any, was stolen in the attack.

During talk with ' The Hacker News ', hackers disclose that they collectively hacked into Malawi (.mw) Domain Registrar website and also target Master and Slave DNS servers. The attackers changed the authoritative DNS records for the affected domains, to point the domain names to their own web server with a deface page hosted on it.
