Current IT security breaches/attacks in banking

I m looking for somethg to post in our corporate IT security 'current banking breaches events': last one I  wrote was the Bangladesh banks Swift funds theft in Feb.  Think last May  another bank fell victim to a Swift funds fraud too.

Any other banking breaches to share n watch out for?

Bangladesh was probably the big Swift one. But there were a few others too. The Philippines, Vietnam and Ecuador have all had banks lose money via the Swift system due to hackers getting in. Obviously banks in countries with a lower standard of living are easier targets. I doubt you're likely to see these kinds of attacks on larger banks with better budgets and more established security practices.

There was an ATM network breach due to malware in Taiwan, here and here.

Oracle got owned which affected a bunch of PoS systems and compromised credit cards. Articles covering this here and here.
