'The Analyzer' Hack Probe Widens; $10 Million Allegedly Stolen From U.S. Banks

Source: Threat Level from Wired.com

Threat Level has an interesting article covering the cybercrime activities of Ehud Tenenbaum, also known as "The Analyzer", who was arrested in Canada last year for allegedly stealing about $1.5 million from Canadian banks. He also allegedly hacked two U.S. banks, a credit and debit card distribution company and a payment processor in what U.S. authorities are calling a global "cashout" conspiracy. The U.S. hacks have resulted in at least $10 million in losses, and are just part of a larger international conspiracy to hack financial institutions in the United States and abroad.
