Indonesia, South Korea central bank websites hit by cyber attacks; no losses

By Hidayat Setiaji JAKARTA (Reuters) – The central banks of Indonesia and South Korea have been hit by cyber attacks on their public websites since activist hacking group Anonymous pledged last month to target banks across the world, senior officials in the two countries told Reuters. In response to the attempted hacks, Bank Indonesia (BI) has blocked 149 regions that don't usually access its website, including several small African countries, Deputy Governor Ronald Waas said in an interview late on Monday. Central banks have been on high alert in the wake of revelations that hackers issued fraudulent money transfers to steal $81 million from the Bangladesh central bank in February.
