This experiment puts the limelight on a vulnerability that could prove to be extremely dangerous to the bank’s Android app users. If hackers perform a malware attack on the app, they could easily access and steal users netbanking usernames & passwords.
The app has 50,000 to 1,00,000 downloads on Google Play. It has 3,350 domestic branches and eight branches and offices overseas. The bank’s business touched Rs 4,20,739 crores for the quarter ending September 30, 2014. BGR India tried contacting Indian Overseas Bank for their response and will update the story if and when we hear from the bank.
The report further states that 70-80 percent of all Android apps are vulnerable to hacking today, as developers focus more on productivity and innovation, pushing their security concerns backstage. If you are an Indian Overseas Bank app user, you might want to uninstall the Android app and change your password just to be safe.
