Germany – European Central Bank


Exploit: Unauthorized database access
European Central Bank: Central bank for monetary policy within the Eurozone

Risk to Small Business: 1.666 = Severe Risk: Hackers infiltrated the database for Banks’ Integrated Reporting Director (BIRD), which includes the subscription information for a newsletter published by the organization. In addition, hackers injected malware into the network that can aid in phishing scams. As a result, the organization took their website offline indefinitely. However, all bank and market-related information was not impacted by the event. Individual Risk: 2.428 = Severe Risk: Database access provided hackers with subscribers’ personal information, including their email addresses, names, and position titles. Fortunately, account passwords were not compromised. Since the BIRD website operates independently from the central bank, more critical information was not exposed during the breach.

Customers Impacted: 481
How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business: In today’s digital landscape, dealing with third-party vendors is an inevitable component of any comprehensive IT infrastructure.

In this case, a vulnerability at a third-party hosting service compromised the data at an organization with a rigorous and multifaceted approach to data security.
