Happy Birthday ♥
Just want to ask (if you know) - actually what happen to Chansung? He got robbed by bank and lose money?
Chansung got affected by the latest Personal data leak which was unveiled on Friday. You can read more about it on a number of news portals, including here:
Chansung didn’t get robbed by the bank. Someone simply leaked his personal data (name, address, social security number, mobile/home phone number, etc.) to third parties mostly for marketing purposes. Luckily, his banking information (like logins and passwords) weren’t leaked, but it is still a major fail on behalf of the banks, considering that South Korea has been prone to identity thefts and personal data leaks for a number of years now.
That’s one of the reason why South Korea internet banking system is so complicated. They implement tons of different security plugins and password levels that, for example, if you have a security certificate saved in your hard drive your computer is the ONLY place from where you can access your bank account.
However, as it is easy to see, such security measures do not always work if the personal data leak occurs from the inside. Since the banking information has not been stolen and most of the information has been sold for marketing companies, this personal data leak could lead to consequences that are more annoying than dangerous. However, one should not rule out the possibility that personal information could also be used for illegal financial operations.
I suppose that’s the main issue with this data leak - you don’t know whether you can trust your financial institution any longer if it cannot ensure that the personal information you entrust them with is kept safe.
