Mr. Pipit Aneaknithi, KBank President, revealed that on July 25, 2018 KBank found that 3,000 names of KBank's corporate customers using KBank's website for providing letter of guarantee (LG) service might be leaked. As soon as KBank detected this irregularity, we immediately closed the loophole and increased the level of data surveillance and protection to prevent potential leak.

The data that may have been leaked to the public are certain names and telephone numbers of KBank's corporate customers using the letter of guarantee service via website only.
