Shs.700M Lost As Hackers Pounce On DFCU Bank


The troublesome days at DFCU Bank are not about to end, the latest being an attack by hackers who made off with a reported Shs700m cash bounty.

The media Friday reported that hackers collaborating with the bank employees staged a high tech heist withdrawing customer’s money. This has made it tricky for customers to keep their money with the troubled bank.

According to our exclusive sources , the bank did their best to keep the news of the heist locked away from public domain despite reporting the matter to Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (CIID) of police.

“Through our investigations, we have established that the crime was executed by four junior staff and two outsiders who have since been arrested and are currently in police custody,” Trumpet News reported.

“The heist occurred two weeks ago but DFCU has kept it a top notch secret for fear of losing clients should the public learn that the customers’ details were compromised.

According to a source in the Bank, the hackers penetrated DFCU’s system in most of the branches in Kampala and withdrew Shs700 million which they shared amongst themselves.

The head of communications at DFCU Rukh-Shana Namuyimba when contacted said she wasn’t aware of any hacking. “I am not in position to comment because I am not aware of that,” she said.
