Mexico central bank estimates hackers hit about $15 million – Reuters Politics


MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s central bank said on Wednesday a cyber attack that has affected a payments system in the country had hit a total of five companies and that an estimated 300 million pesos ($15.33 million) of irregular transactions had been detected so far.

Bank of Mexico Governor Alejandro Diaz de Leon said five market participants were victims of the hack, which hit connections to a domestic payments system at the end of April, but did not specify which banks, brokerages or other companies were targeted.
