Sberbank's management in the investigation into customer data loss revealed new facts in this case. This is indicated in the message of the bank.
They said that the employee involved in the loss at the end of September sold a total of 5,000 Ural Bank of Sberbank credit card accounts on one of the criminal groups in the dark. The sale of these data took place in different tranches, specified in the bank.
The press service noted that a significant number of cards he sold were obsolete and inactive. "These cards have been reissued, there is no threat to customer funds," Sberbank concluded.
