"“Targeting financial organizations is part of their long-term strategy and compromising global financial networks via small to medium-sized banks in Central and South America whose cyber-defenses may be less sophisticated poses a higher probability of success,” he explained.

In the Lakes Region Chile for 6 years. It looks like New Zealand in some ways, and is nearly at the bottom of the world too, but there the similarities end.

Got this message today on Transferwise.

Sorry, we can not send money to Cuenta Vista accounts in Chile at the moment. We are working to get this changed soon.

Cuenta Vista would include Cuenta RUT.
I managed to send money to Cuenta RUT again this week so looks like the above has been fixed and is old news.

Also, that low daily limit has gone, I sent larger amounts this week of about a thousand pounds in a single transaction. Just have to keep it below 1 million pesos to meet the Banco Estado limit.
In 2014/2015 I blogged about my life in Chile. http://web.archive.org/web/201601121940 ... age_id=268

You know the thing that set off my alarm bells about banco de chile's security was a look i had at their stock trading platform a couple of years ago.

I signed up for an account. They send me a link to a an all (8 year old) flash web site, on a diffrent domain, with no ssl encryption. Looked like it was made by some 12 year old in the basement. You could load account pages, by passing their login screen, simply cutting and pasting the "security token" they were using to authenticate. It was so bad i am not even sure it counted as a cross site scripting attack.

I told my wife there was no way we were transfering any money to them.
