Two Nigerian big boys arrested in India for hacking into a bank network & stealing funds
The police in India has arrested 2 Nigerian men for allegedly phishing att@cks and br£aking into a cooperative bank network in Tamil Nadu state.
The suspects identified as Augustine, 40, & Ekene Godwin, 30, also allegedly targeted a bank in Gujarat from which they swindled 10 lakh. In Tamil Nadu, they used a cyber tool called Key Logger & broke into the cooperative bank network, whereas in Gujarat they used a tool named Sweet-32, Times Of India reports.
Usually, banks do not connect their core system to the internet so as to stay away from spyware and cyber-att@cks. In this particular case, Augustine sent phishing mail to the bank officials.
Soon after they clicked on the link, the embedded software Key Logger and NG Rok got downloaded & entered into the system without alerting the bank officials on November 18. On November 2022, the gang accessed three accounts, made 32 transactions & took away ₹2.5 crore.
