FRAUD ALERT: SMS asking people to confirm Visa CCV2 code

We've had reports of an SMS asking people to confirm their Visa CC2V code (three-digit code on back of card).

Protect yourself against malware

You may have heard about the recent news of malware targeting the banking apps in Australia. Bank Australia’s banking app has not been hacked or compromised.

The malware targets Android devices, with people being asked to change and or accept new settings. This then installs malware on their devices which imitates their banking apps (such as login screens) and can steal login details.

To avoid this, we recommended you only install applications for your Android device from trusted sources such as Google Play. Also, if your device suggests a change that you didn’t request, do not accept it.

It’s important to have virus/malware protection on anything that connects to the Internet (computer, phone, and tablet) and ensure sure that it is kept up-to-date, with full scans run regularly.

Bank Australia has 24 hour monitoring in place on the bank app. If you notice any suspicious activity on your account please contact us immediately on 132 888.
