CIMB’s services being down in one way or another isn’t particularly newsworthy at this point, but according to this Twitter user, CIMB is currently hit by ransomware.

Twitter user Aizad Fahmy also shared that he has no ETA on the recovery of services, although given how extensive ransomware attacks can be, it might take quite a while before CIMB will be able to get their services back online.

The ransomware apparently didn’t affect CIMBclicks, but instead only CIMB’s over the counter operations. There are reports of CIMB facing issues with its card payment system, so I guess that’s one of the systems affected. We will update this post if we find more information.
