Tiniyak ng Banco De Oro (BDO) na mare-reimburse sa kanilang mga kliyente ang perang nawala sa kanilang account matapos mabiktima ng malawakang hacking incident ang pinakamalaking bangko sa bansa.

Sa isang pahayag, inamin ng BDO na aware sila sa nasabing insidente ng hacking na ginamitan umano ng “sophisticated fraud technique” upang manakaw ang pera ng ilan sa kanilang account holders.

Ikinasa na rin umano ng bangko ang karagdagang “security measures” upang hindi na ito maulit pa at maprotektahan ang kanilang bank credentials.

“Most recently, we have required our online banking users to update their passwords. Changing their password improves account security and prevents fraudsters from accessing their hard-earned money,” ayon sa pahayag ng BDO.

“We thank our clients for their patience and cooperation in protecting their online bank accounts. We assure our affected innocent clients that we will reimburse their losses,” dagdag pa nito.

Noong isang araw ay dinagsa ng reklamo ang Facebook page ng BDO Unibank mula sa mga customer na nagulat matapos mabawasan ang kanilang perang nakadeposito sa account nila sa naturang bangko.

Ayon sa mga biktima, nasa P40,000 hanggang P200,000 umano ang perang nabawas sa kanilang account gayung wala namang dumarating na OTP request sa kanilang cellphone.

Lumabas sa mga ulat na ninakaw ang pera sa mga account ng BDO at inilipat ito sa isang account sa Union Bank. Ginamit umano ang naturang pera upang bumili ng Bitcoin cryptocurrency na nagkakahalaga ng P5-M noong Disyembre 11 sa ilalim ng account name na “Mark Nagoyo” sa Union Bank.

Binuo rin ng mga biktima ang Facebook group na “Mark Nagoyo BDO Hacked” na sa ngayon ay mayroon nang mahigit 4,500 miyembro.

Sa kasalukuyan, nakikipag-ugnayan na ang BDO sa National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) at Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) upang matunton kung sinuman ang nasa likod ng hacking incident.

Inaalam na rin ng National Privacy Commission (NPC) kung may nanakaw ding personal data ng mga depositors bukod sa kanilang mga pera.


Steve Jobs’ worn out Birkenstock sandals sell for $218,000 at auction




A pair of sandals owned and worn by the late Apple founder Steve Jobs have been sold for more than $200,000 at an auction by Julien’s.

The brown suede leather Birkenstock Arizona sandals was worn by Jobs in the late 70s and 80s. It was sold to an undisclosed buyer for $218,750.

“Steve Jobs wore these sandals during many pivotal moments in Apple’s history. In 1976, he hatched the beginnings of Apple computer in a Los Altos garage with Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak while occasionally wearing these sandals,” said Julien’s in its listing.

The footwear had been Birkenstock’s in many past exhibitions including those in Salone del Mobile in Milano, Italy; Birkenstock Headquarters in Rahms, Germany; Birkenstock’s first United States store in SoHo, New York; and with the History Museum Wurttemberg in Stuttgart, Germany, among many others.

The item had an initial value at $60,000 before it was sold for the highest bid mentioned; said to be the highest price ever paid for a pair of sandals at an auction.

Julien’s said the Birkenstock pair was previously part of a collection of Mark Sheff, Jobs’ estate manager in Albany, California. It was also previously sold for $2,000 at an auction in 2016.

Sheff told Insider in an interview that Jobs ‘kept very few things’ and the pair of sandals was one of those he acquired from the former Apple CEO.

“We kept some, shared some with the landscapers and friends and brought some to Goodwill. The collection we ended up with is quite random,” Sheff narrated.

Jobs is known for his simple outfit; oftentimes wearing only jeans, turtleneck shirts and sandals even on business meetings.

“The sandals were part of his simple side. They were his uniform. The great thing about a uniform is that you don’t have to worry about what to wear in the morning,” his ex-partner Chrisann Brennan recalled in an interview with Vogue.

Job’s iconic Birkenstock are well used but still intact with the original adjustable buckles and the stamping on the inner edge of the suede leather foot straps.

Its cork and jute footbed also retains the imprint of Steve Jobs’ feet, which had been shaped after years of use, according to Julien’s.
