Computer made offer it could not refuse


Mafia
hackers managed to steal more than £10 million from an Italian government bank account, the Daily Mail claims.

It is believed that the hackers worked for the N'drangheta Mafia from the southern Italian region of Calabria. Apparently, it was not a particularly high tech hack. The Mafia made an employee an offer he could not refuse and he handed over the passwords.

The Mail said that the money went to Bologna and then Egypt. It sounds like a nice holiday, but it failed to buy a return ticket. The hackers then raided the bank account. Rome police said the government bankers noticed that there was a bit less money in the account six weeks ago. Happens to us all the time.
