LankaClear, the operator of LankaPay denies recent rumours circulating in social media claiming that the security of ATMs of certain banks were compromised. 


“We wish to inform the public that the common ATM network adheres to the highest security standards. All member banks have informed LankaClear that the ATM network of Sri Lanka is not compromised in anyway and safe to use,” LankaClear assured the public in a statement. 


During the course of last week, several rumours circulated on social media and certain websites claiming that the ATM network of a leading bank in the country was hacked. 
“LankaClear wishes to inform the general public that this is a malicious message distributed by unscrupulous individuals with malicious intent to damage the reputation of the financial sector,” it further stated. 


Issuing a press release, the Computer Society of Sri Lanka (CSSL), the only recognized local apex body for ICT professionals also urged the public not to be misled by such false information.

“There had been numerous inquiries from CSSL on the recently published articles on various matters pertaining to the ICT industry by certain groups which are misleading with distorted facts detrimental to the general public who obtain services offered on ICT platforms.  We earnestly request the public not to be misled by any news items which do not have proper technical grounds and to verify the authenticity of parties who spread such irresponsible statements prior to using such information,” CSSL stated.
