Hacker groups such as the Chinese Government’s “Cyber-Defense Force” and the Russian Federal Security Service have been behind numerous high-profile attacks, including one that exposed personal information of up to one billion people.
The New York Times and Reuters have published several articles about the group and its tactics, including its hack of a U.S. intelligence agency’s database, a breach of a Chinese bank’s system, and a hack of the New York Stock Exchange’s data.
But a Reuters report on Thursday said the group was targeting banks in India that handle foreign currency transactions.
The Reuters report did not specify which banks were targeted.
The report said the hackers, calling themselves the “Krunk Hacker,” used the handle “Rabbit” and used the code name “Cybertrackers.”
Reuters also said the attackers targeted at least 10 Indian banks, including five listed in the Indian securities market.
Reuters did not name the bank.
The news agency said the Krunk Hacker also used the name “Krishna” on social media, but did not identify him.
Krunk has been active since 2016, but Reuters did identify two of the bank’s senior executives, as well as the CEO and president.
The other person the AP identified was a person who the AP said has been part of the group since 2013.
A spokesman for the Krunks declined to comment.
India’s cybercrime agency did not respond to Reuters’ questions.
The AP also did not say who the Krunker group was or why it was targeting India.
A person familiar with the investigation into the attacks said the banks were all connected through a central account, which the Krunters used to transfer money from one account to another.
The Krunks also were responsible for making a series of payments to the same bank.
A security researcher familiar with India’s banking system said the accounts were used to make payments to foreign companies, but that they were not connected to the Krunchers.
“The banking system is really bad in India.
The government does not want to know,” said the researcher, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
The banks said they were investigating the allegations.
“We are investigating the matter thoroughly,” the Indian banks said in a statement.
The cybercrime group’s hacking of the U.K. government’s data system has drawn international attention, especially because the U,K.
had some of the highest levels of cybercrime data in the world at the time of the cyberattack.
Reuters’ report said some of that data, including names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and passport numbers, had been stolen from the British government’s computer system by the Krunky group.
The hacker group’s attack has led to an outpouring of support for the U-K.
Prime Minister David Cameron called for the cybercriminals to be held accountable, and the Prime Minister of Ireland, Enda Kenny, said he would demand an apology from the group.
Reuters reported that the Krumps have also attacked Indian banks that handle transactions of the country’s currency.
The U.N. agency said it had been monitoring the U.-K.
for breaches of banking information systems.
Reuters also reported that two other groups had used the same code, which has been linked to the Chinese government.
The FBI said it was aware of the code and was working with banks and law enforcement to disrupt the group’s activities.
