Dear Reader,

Alleged hacked BOCI account explains Pa Shun Pharma (0574) surge
A Cyberport-based investment company alleges that an unauthorised person logged into its BOCI account and bought up 4.92% of PSP at an average 36% above the previous day's close, draining its account of about HK$37.7m. The SFC has today commenced a general cybersecurity review on brokers' systems after 16 incidents in the last 12 months involving over HK$100m. (13-Oct-2016)

When we complained, HKEX did not require disclosure of the bank’s identity, thereby preserving the secrecy behind the cornerstone investors which facilitate HKEX’s IPO business. Once again, the regulatory conflict of interest is exposed. (3-Oct-2016)
