Dark web hackers boast of Tesco Bank thefts
Hackers boasted of thefts from Tesco Bank months before before the company reported losing £2.5m in an attack.
Cybersecurity company Cyberint said it had discovered posts on a variety of dark web forums whose members had described the lender as being a "cash milking cow" and "easy to cash out".
It is not clear, however, whether there is any link between these claims and the money stolen just over a week ago.
The bank has repeatedly declined to give details of the crime.
It says it is unable to do so while a criminal investigation is being carried out.
