Qatar National Bank Probes Possible Data Breach

Bank details exposed include those of ruling family and defense officials, reports say.

Qatar National Bank is probing reports of an online leak of confidential data of a large number of its customers, but has not confirmed it suffered a data breach, according to Reuters. Qatar-based Doha News reports say among the details leaked include names, passwords, and banking information of several Al-Jazeera journalists, "members of the ruling Al-Thani family" as well as government and defense officials.

Some 1.5GB of information was found online and Reuters reports seeing recent transactions of overseas remittances. Some of the account holders whose data is reportedly among the leaked files have verified the data was theirs.

The bank, one of the largest in the Middle East, declined to comment on the news but said that "there is no financial impact on our clients or the bank."

Nefarious Use
It was stated that 1.5gb of data was found online, was there anything in the report that stated that this data may have been used maliciously for fraudulent purposes?
