New Delhi, June 23 (IANS) Canara Bank's official social media handle on X (formerly Twitter) has been hacked. The hacker changed the username of the handle to 'ether.fi'.

However, the bank has yet to take action in response. Till 1:30 p.m., no new posts have been made on the account after being hacked.

Meanwhile, Canara Bank has officially confirmed that their X handle has been compromised. 

“Canara Bank would like to inform to all concerned that the bank's official X (formerly Twitter) account has been compromised. All concerned teams are investigating the matter and working closely with X to regain access to Canara Bank X handle at the earliest.

We urge users not to post anything on our X page. We will inform immediately when it is restored and working in Canara Bank controls. The inconvenience caused is regretted,"  the bank said in a press release on Sunday.

In a similar cyber attack, Axis Bank’s support handle on social media platform X was hacked on the night of June 17. During this time, some posts were made by hackers regarding billionaire Elon Musk's company Tesla.

Axis Bank, in a post on June 18, responded, “We are investigating the possible hack of the bank’s support handle. We are trying to resolve the issue at the earliest. Please ignore all posts made during this period and do not click on any unauthorised links.”

In another post, Axis Bank wrote, “The bank never asked for any kind of personal details regarding internet and mobile banking passwords, OTP, ATM PIN, or otherwise. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
