    Tesco Bank ‘failed to heed warning on cyberattack’ - The Times

    Security flaw enabled fraudsters to steal millions

    Investigators are looking into whether Tesco Bank ignored a warning about a security flaw in its payment system that allowed fraudsters to steal millions of pounds from the accounts of thousands of its customers.

    Officials at the Financial Conduct Authority and the National Crime Agency believe that Tesco might have failed to act on an industry-wide warning from Visa a year ago. They believe that hackers using specially designed computers were able to take advantage of a so-called Code 91 glitch to access the debit card details.

    The glitch meant that criminals were able to repeatedly “ping” payment sites with random debit card numbers until they found a match with a customer’s card number, expiry date and three-digit security code.

    New card turned up in the last few days. Didn't think they were going to replace them, so came as a surprise. However it's still activated and that seems to be where the problems lay.
