The bank said in a statement that all relevant teams are looking into the situation and collaborating closely with X to get back access to Canara Bank X as soon as possible.

With approximately 2.55 lakh followers, Canara Bank’s official X social media handle was hacked. On Sunday, the bank acknowledged the incident and said that their X handle had been compromised. The hacker had changed the handle’s username to “ether.fi.”

“All concerned teams are investigating the matter and working closely with X to regain access to Canara Bank X handle at the earliest,” it stated. After the account was hacked, no fresh posts were made until around 4 p.m. On its X page, the bank asked people not to submit anything. “As soon as it is operational again with Canara Bank controls, we will promptly notify you.” The bank expressed its sorry for the trouble caused.

On June 17, Axis Bank’s support account on social media platform X was compromised in a cyberattack of a similar nature. Hackers published various posts on tech billionaire Elon Musk’s company, Tesla, during that period. Axis Bank had replied in a post, saying, “We are looking into the possibility that the bank’s support handle was hacked. We’re working to find a quick solution to the problem. Please disregard all posts made during this time and refrain from clicking on any links that are not authorized.”
