Sberbank said it had stopped a large-scale attack on the cards of Russian customers by a Ukrainian company developing mobile applications.

According to RIA Novosti, referring to the deputy board of the bank Stanislav Kuznetsov, attempts to write off money on a massive scale were noted almost immediately after the start of the special operation. The number of such attacks reached tens of thousands per minute. An investigation by Sberbank specialists showed that “one Ukrainian company — a developer of mobile applications” tried to carry out the write-offs. We are talking about about fifty applications that collected and stored bank card data.

“And everything was completely legal, because they sold legal services in applications - a subscription to meal plans, fitness programs, and so on”, - Kuznetsov pointed out.
