  • OCC warns banks to report cyberattacks
    The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has told banks to report cyberattacks to law enforcement officials and to let customers know how the attacks will affect them. The warning comes in the wake of several denial-of-service attacks on large banks last week. Some analysts say the OCC might incorporate its reporting instructions to banks into its regular examination activities. Bloomberg Businessweek (12/21) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

The case, which is the CFPB's first joint enforcement action with its state allies, involves four state attorneys general and Hawaii's Office of Consumer Protection.

  • Borrowers complain about effects of shared-loss agreements
    Some borrowers are complaining about banks that acquire failed institutions under a Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. loss-sharing agreement and then demand repayment of delinquent or maturing loans. The FDIC's practice of reimbursing the purchasing bank for 80% of lost principal gives that bank little reason to work with struggling borrowers, they say. The FDIC defended the agreements and the way banks handle acquired loans. The Charlotte Observer (N.C.) (12/22) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
