On Thursday , The European Central Bank shut down one of its websites after being hacked and infected with malicious software.
The ECB has stated that no market-sensitive data has been compromised, but that the e-mail addresses, names and titles of the subscribers to the Banks’ Integrated Reporting Dictionary (BIRD) newsletter may have been stolen.
BIRD is a website that the ECB uses to help banks comply with the reporting standards set by global regulators.
The ECB is an official EU institution at the heart of the Eurosystem and the Single Supervisory Mechanism.
More than 3,500 employees from all over Europe work for the ECB in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. They carry out various tasks in close cooperation with the national central banks of the Eurosystem and, with regard to banking supervision, with the national supervisory authorities under the single supervisory mechanism.
