First Horizon Bank Customers Have Account Funds Drained


InfoSecurity magazine recently wrote about the First Horizons breach leading to customers having their account funds drained. A leading US bank has revealed a data breach in which over 100 online customers had their funds accessed by an unauthorized intruder.

First Horizon Bank claimed in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) yesterday that less than $1 million was stolen in total from those accounts.

The attack itself seems to have relied on stolen or brute forced customer credentials, plus the exploitation of a vulnerability inside the financial services company.

K2’s VP, Timothy Chiu was tapped for commentary on the First Horizon breach.
