Over 50,000 Revolut Customers Affected by Data Breach

Financial technology company Revolut has started informing some customers that it has been targeted in a cyberattack that resulted in their information getting compromised.

Financial technology company Revolut has started informing some customers that it has been targeted in a cyberattack that resulted in their information getting compromised.

Revolut described the attack as highly targeted and said the attacker only had access to customer information for a short period of time. The company claimed the attacker did not have access to money, card details, PINs, or passwords.

Revolut said the incident impacted 0.16% of its customers, who have been warned about the increased risk of fraud resulting from the breach.

Revolut is based in the UK, but has a specialized banking license from Lithuania, which is also home of Revolut Bank UAB. The company has informed Lithuanian regulators that the incident has affected roughly 50,150 customers around the world, including approximately 20,000 in Europe.

The exposed information includes names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, partial payment card data, and some account details.

According to the Lithanian State Data Protection Inspectorate, Revolut said one of its databases was accessed through social engineering.

Just before the hack was disclosed, some Revolut customers reported getting obscene messages via the application’s chat feature. After the incident was announced, some users reported getting text messages pointing to a Revolut phishing website. It’s unclear if these events are related to the breach.
