Hackers in the modern day can really be a problem. But if you talk about money being involved (which is usually the case) breaching a supposedly secure IT infrastructure is bound to get a lot of attention.
It is in these cases where you have to wonder, do you credit the intelligence of these people or curse them for being able to breach such confidential systems. The $50,000 dollars that they got was no joke and these days, that money can go a long way. A recourse stemming from the hard times perhaps?
Police said a hacker, possibly with international connections, succeeded in planting a keystroke logger onto the computer of Sandwich, Mass., Treasurer Craig Mayen, and was able to watch while he entered his security password, The Boston Globe reported Wednesday.
You have to hand it to these people. In times where money is hard to come by, hitting a town treasury is certainly an accomplishment for them. However, it also means that you are liable for crime and lawsuits especially if you get caught. At the moment, the only lead to it all is a Florida man who said he was wired money to open the accounts reportedly from Russia. A Russian hacker? It can make sense.
