SBI Website hacked, no data loss

SBI website, www.sbi.co.in was hacked on Dec 25th – though the site has been restored, the transaction features are not yet enabled and will take another few weeks to conduct transactions at the site.

What’s interesting to note is that SBI wants to avoid the word ‘hacking’ and is calling the disruption ‘technical problem‘ – again, a case of not informing users whether their data is safe or not.

The bank has three million Net banking users. If you are one, did you receive any mailer from SBI informing the issue (i.e. technical snag?)

Do you feel comfortable hearing about the hacking from third party sources (and not the bank itself?)?
