On Wednesday, a media report claimed that State Bank of India which is India's largest bank left a server with the banking data of its consumers unprotected.
The reported server is said to have been secured since then, but the existence of an alleged unprotected server raises serious questions about the security practices at the bank, which manages the money of over 42 crore customers across India.
According to a report by TechCrunch, the alleged unprotected server of the State Bank of India was housed in a Mumbai data centre and included two months of data from SBI Quick, a missed call banking service from the company.
