The Taoiseach has described the Loyaltybuild data breach as "a matter of concern" and "an issue that needs to be addressed".

He was speaking in the wake of confirmation by two major banks, AIB and Permanent TSB that their customers have fallen victim to fraudulent credit card transactions, following the biggest cyber attack in the history of the State.

It is the first time that evidence of financial fraud has emerged following the significant hacking of a customer database at the Irish marketing and travel business Loyaltybuild.
