“All concerned teams are investigating the matter and working closely with X to regain access to Canara Bank X handle at the earliest.”

“We will inform you immediately when it is restored and working in Canara Bank controls. The inconvenience caused is regretted.”

Hackers published various posts on tech billionaire Elon Musk’s company Tesla during that period.

In a post, Axis Bank responded

“We are investigating the possible hack of the bank’s support handle. We are trying to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Please ignore all posts made during this period and do not click on any unauthorized links.”
