Multibanco attack affects dozens in Lisbon suburbs

Police are investigating reports that dozens of people in the suburbs of Lisbon woke up over the weekend to find their bank accounts had been ‘hacked’ overnight, with hundreds of euros taken. For now, it is looking like some form of Multibanco (ATM) attack, in which magnetic strips from bona-fide cards have been cloned. A similar attack appears to have taken place on the border with Spain, say reports.
