schattenteufel: What do you call someone who steals from thieves?

A government employee.

In other news, who knew there was a bank left in this country with any money left in it to steal?

you know, at this point a cyber attack on a bank worries me less then a piggy bank raid by a ceo these days

Prank Call of Cthulhu: They stole the bent paperclip??!?! Oh noes, now they won't be able to pop open stuck CD ROM drives and extract faulty Zip disks!!!

Damn you, hackers. Damn you all to Hell.

They're for cleaning the residue out of their crack pipes. That's why I have so many bent paperclips.

Except, well, my pipes aren't for crack, but it's the same idea.

I love it when there's "news" articles that present rumors in such a way to convince you it's true - with ZERO evidence.

Thenixon: Dr_Grinch: That article doesn't discuss the methods of network intrusion these guys use, but it's mostly modified SQL injection attacks to find weaknesses on the perimeter, and then a blend of tools and savvy to get further into the network.

Didn't most of them get caught (pops) though?

Yeah some of them did get nabbed, but there are others running similar operations. Also, FTA, the break-in occurred up to a year ago, which means they got away basically clean until someone finally noticed a breached box.
Could very well have been the RBS crew.
