Fwd: Security (or lack of) at Number26 2017-01-09

Hi!

I would like to share a talk that I attended at 33c3. It’s about a company with a banking license and accounts with actual money. Some people downplay these issues as “yeah, but the issues were fixed” and “every major bank probably has something like this”. I would like to reply:

  • With a bit of time and interest, any moderate hobby security researcher could have found what he found, including me.
  • The issues uncovered are not mere issues of a product, they are issues in processes and culture.

When I checked earlier, Number26 did not have open positions for security professionals. They do now:
