The cybercriminals defined the security implemented by the bank terrible.

“Pacific City Bank provides outstanding banking and financial services for businesses and consumers. (but they have horrible security)” reads the message published on the leak site. “If they refuse to negotiate, we will leak all the data we’ve got. Attached are some of the documents that were exfiltrated.”
