#AceFinanceNews – June.23: QNB hackers dump data from Sharjah’s InvestBank

Hackers have leaked files online believed to contain data on thousands of customers of Sharjah-based InvestBank UAE.

The files are understood to have been stolen last December, when it was reported that Investbank had been hacked and an individual had tried to blackmail the bank for $3 million.

When the bank refused to pay, it was said that the hacker threatened to dump the stolen files online, yet they never appeared.

The data dump from InvestBank holds almost 13,000 files totalling 9.4 GB. (Shutterstock)
