Anatomy of a Corporate "Cyberheist" [Link]

Brian Krebs writes about Tennessee Electric suing its bank for negligence when hackers funneled off $325,000 from their account. But what I found more interesting is the process by which the money was stolen and that it was distributed to 50 different "mules" around the US. Fascinating and frightening. It doesn't sound like a phishing scam but rather malware interception.1


  1. A "cyber"-interception by "cyber"-malware. I kid, I kid. Krebs is the authority here. Still, cyber?
