The breach affected the Spanish bank's operations in Spain, Chile and Uruguay.

“We recently became aware of an unauthorized access to a Santander database hosted by a third-party provider,” the Spanish lender states. “Certain information relating to customers of Santander Chile, Spain and Uruguay, as well as all current and some former Santander employees of the group had been accessed.”

The bank says that no transactional information, access credentials or internet banking passwords were lifted and that the incident has now been contained.

In a statement, the bank says: "We apologise for the concern this will understandably cause and are proactively contacting affected customers and employees directly. We have also notified regulators and law enforcement and will continue to work closely with them."
