That can’t be common practice, a ‘master key’ for a banking system just sounds like you are asking for trouble


Main key* please.


I am so tired of these leaks


And the key name was “pepega”


South African here: Post bank and post office are completely disfunctional organizations. For Americans imagine the DMV but only 10% that good. This does not surprise me at all that they are running such terrible tech. The rest of our banking and fin serv industry is actually one of the best in the world.
