Programmers working on a new bank’s digital security platform have warned of a cyber attack on the bank’s servers.
The warning came after a security researcher disclosed a vulnerability in the bank website, which the bank said it was working to patch.
The vulnerability has been discovered in a software version of the platform, dubbed BankSecurity, that the bank uses to verify user identity.
The vulnerability allows anyone to access bank databases without a password.
BankSecurity has been used to provide information about customer accounts to customers and to monitor their banking transactions.
It is expected to be fully rolled out in the coming months, according to the bank.
The bank has said that it has no evidence that the vulnerability was used to gain access to bank data.
However, the vulnerability has raised questions about the security of the bank, with some banks reporting that the attack was made possible by a flaw in the code used to encrypt the bank account data.
“Bank security has been compromised,” said Brian D’Orazio, the chief technology officer of the Bank of Ireland.
“Bankers have the responsibility to take extra precautions and make sure that their systems are secure.”
The bank said that all data stored in its online bank system is encrypted and that users have the right to access their banking information from any device.
The bank’s chief financial officer, David Condon, said: “The bank will take steps to improve the security and privacy of our customers’ information, and we will be making improvements to ensure it is available to the widest possible audience.”
“Our aim is to make it as easy as possible for our customers to transact in and receive their payments, and our commitment to this is reflected in our security measures, which have been made more secure since the vulnerability.”
The Irish Times understands that the latest update of the software will not affect any existing users.
