Iran's Central Bank has announced that the electronic information of 3 million customers of 10 Iranian banks have been compromised. These banks now require their customers to change their ATM pin numbers before they can access their account. This has caused a rush to the ATM machines by the worried customers.
The Parliament plans to summon the Central Bank chief Mahmoud Bahmani to respond to MPs questions regarding this security breach. Bahmani is scheduled to travel to U.S. in the next few days to participate in the spring convention of the World Bank.
According to Mehr News Agency, an employee of a company only identified as "F.A." is responsible for revealing the cutomer's information. The license of "F.A." which is the main Payment Service Provider (PSP) company serving Iranian banks has been suspended pending investigation of the incident.
