Hackers Steal $6.7M in Bank Cyber Heist

Orome1 (1901578) writes "A perfectly planned, coordinated and executed bank robbery was executed during the first three days of the new year in Johannesburg, and left the targeted South African Postbank — part of the nation's Post Office service — with a loss of some $6.7 million. The cyber gang behind the heist was obviously very well informed about the post office's IT systems, and began preparing the ground for its execution a few months before by opening accounts in post offices across the country and compromising an employee computer in the Rustenburg Post Office."
