A Bidvest Bank spokesperson told MyBroadband they have investigated the issue and their evidence shows that the incident was neither a security breach nor a technical security flaw.
“This was an isolated incident in which one person seems to have had access to data due to a manual processing error,” the Bidvest Bank spokesperson said.
Missing: How many clients were affected (who's data was exposed)?

An “isolated incident” linked to Bidvest Bank’s online banking platform exposed sensitive information of its clients, including names, account numbers, and bank balances.
Have any forumites been notified that theri data was exposed yet? Just curious about the scope.
As I understand it this was primarily a staff error that exposed sensitive client records to at least one other client.
