FXCM reports hacking
NEW YORK: Online foreign exchange market broker FXCM said on Thursday it had been hacked in an intrusion that saw money withdrawn from some customer accounts.
“At this time FXCM has identified a small number of unauthorised wire transfers from customer accounts,” the company said in a statement.
But it added that all the money has been returned to the raided accounts and the affected customers have been notified.
FXCM said it had received an e-mail from a hacker claiming to have access to customer information. The firm said it notified FBI and also launched its own investigation.
