Hackers Target Maltese Bank in €15m Cyber Heist

A leading Maltese bank is resuming its services after shutting down operations following a major cyber-attack.

The Bank of Valetta (BOV) said in a notice on Thursday morning that customers could once again use ATMs, online banking, mobile Banking and their BOV cards, although at the time of writing, payments to third parties were still suspended.

This is following an attack which directed €13m ($14.7m, £11m) worth of fake payments from the bank to accounts in the UK, US, Hong Kong and the Czech Republic.
