In general, there were actually two security issues related to CIMB that have been discussed widely among local Internet users for the past few days. One being the password implementation on CIMB Clicks which we have touched right here and another one is unauthorized PayPal transactions involving CIMB debit cards.
Since both of them took place at roughly the same time period, some might think that they are related to each other. However, CIMB has confirmed that it is a separate issue altogether according to the latest version of the FAQ document (PDF) regarding the recent security implementation on CIMB Clicks.
Interestingly, no police reports have been made regarding the loss of funds from CIMB accounts so far according to a report by Harian Metro yesterday. Citing the Deputy Director of Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) of Royal Malaysia Police in Bukit Aman, Saiful Azly Kamaruddin, this was up until 4:00PM.
Saiful further pointed out that the department already aware of the issue since it went viral throughout social media. He advises consumers who were affected by the issue should come forward and report it to the police in order to allow them to investigate the issue
With that, we do recommend you follow exactly what the Deputy Director has stated in the news report even if you might have notified CIMB and PayPal regarding the unauthorized fund transfer from your respective accounts.
