UniCredit says hackers get data on 400,000 clients

Rome (AFP) - UniCredit said Wednesday that hackers obtained informaton on about 400,000 of its Italian customers, but not data that would give them access to bank accounts.

The Italian bank said the breaches, which occurred via an outside partner last year and during the past two months, related to information on personal loans.

"No data, such as passwords allowing access to customer accounts or allowing for unauthorised transactions, has been affected, while some other personal data and IBAN numbers might have been accessed," the bank said in a statement.

UniCredit said it had immediately taken steps to close the breach and notified the authorities, and intended to file a criminal complaint.
