    A large commercial bank in Florida said Wednesday that "an Internet hacker" penetrated the security of its systems earlier this month and made off with a file containing 3,600 online-banking customer names and addresses. Officials of Republic Bank said the attacker managed to get past the bank's security firewalls but did not access account balances or transactions of its online banking customers. . . . A large commercial bank in Florida said Wednesday that "an Internet hacker" penetrated the security of its systems earlier this month and made off with a file containing 3,600 online-banking customer names and addresses. Officials of Republic Bank said the attacker managed to get past the bank's security firewalls but did not access account balances or transactions of its online banking customers.

    According to Internet records, the server hosting Republic's online bank, located at http://secure.republic.openbank.com , is operated by Atlanta-based S1 Corp. [NASDAQ:SONE], a leading provider of electronic finance services to banks, credit unions, insurance providers and investment firms.

    Chris Rogers, a spokesperson for S1, said the technology firm's systems and applications were not involved in the security incident at Republic.
