Submission + - Hackers Steal $6.7M in Bank Cyber Heist (net-security.org)

Orome1 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.
