Hacking attack on Commercial Bank of Dubai

Commercial Bank of Dubai (CBD) is ditching its web site provider following concerns about security for the site.

The bank’s move follows a hacking attack last month that saw the web site defaced after a hacker gained entry to the site’s administration system.

The hacking attack is just the latest security incident to come to light featuring banks in the UAE. Banks in the country are so concerned at the security situation that executives from a number of the leading banks have held a series of confidential meetings to discuss security issues and share information, IT Weekly has learned.
