Hackers try to blackmail Swiss bank after stealing data

Swiss bank BCGE said Thursday hackers had stolen the personal data of thousands of clients as a newspaper reported it was being blackmailed. The Banque Cantonale de Geneve said the theft had affected several thousand of its estimated 240,000 clients but that there had been "no financial damage." The hackers, calling themselves Rex Mundi, were threatening to publish some 30,000 emails of the affected clients if the bank did not hand over 10,000 euros ($11,800) by Friday, the Le Temps daily reported.

The threat was reportedly made on Twitter. The cantonal bank, which focuses on small and medium-sized businesses and on portfolio investments, refused to comment on the blackmail report when contacted by AFP. BCGE said the authorities have launched an investigation into the hacking.
