The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) said the IT security system of a single bank, which it did not name, had been "compromised" on October 27 and it had already instructed all banks to increase their scrutiny.

"It has been noted with concern news items reporting that the data of most banks has been hacked. SBP categorically rejects such reports," a statement from the central bank said.
