BREACH: HSBC Turkey Confirms Card Breach via OSINT-X Newswires

HSBC Turkey confirms that a recent cyber-attack exposed payment card information for 2.7 million customers.

The bank is a subsidiary of London-based HSBC Group, which has operations worldwide in 74 countries and territories.

Information compromised in the breach includes debit and credit cardholder names, account numbers and expiration dates. The bank says that, so far, it has not seen any evidence of fraud or other suspicious activity arising from the incident.

HSBC Turkey detected the attack in the past week through its internal security controls, according to an FAQ. The attack was limited to Turkey, and all card operations have been restored to normal functioning, the bank says. No other details about the nature of the incident were revealed.
