KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 6 – CIMB Bank Berhad (“CIMB Bank”) and CIMB Islamic Bank Berhad (“CIMB Islamic”) (“the banks” or “CIMB”) would like to address the current speculation on the banks’ IT systems.
We would like to clarify that we detected some suspicious external behaviour towards our IT systems and as a precautionary measure, we immediately suspended certain systems. This affected some aspects of our business, specifically internal functions.
We would like to reiterate that our core banking system and customer data remain intact, and our customers have been able to perform their banking transactions as usual, including via CIMB Clicks, BizChannel@CIMB and Self Service Terminals (e.g., ATMs, Cash Deposit Machines).
CIMB continues to take all necessary steps to ensure a secure banking environment for our customers. We would like to thank our valued customers for their support and understanding.
