Targobank took far-reaching steps after the cyber attack. The financial institution subsequently blocked online access. Thousands of customers are affected by this. According to the bank, unauthorized persons tried to gain access to customers’ online banking. However, the financial institution’s security systems prevented anything bad from happening: “For the highest possible security, new access data must be made,” Targobank said.
We are currently in contact with approximately 6,000 affected customers. On Monday, readers turned to the “Heise Online” website. Accordingly, customers have been unable to access their online banking at Targobank since Saturday, neither on the app nor from a web browser. However, other functions, such as card payments, are not affected.
