Two cybercriminals have been detained in Poltava

Nearly every bank in Ukraine runs its operations on an internal network connected with the Internet. Although the local banks claim that its security is virtually foolproof, our gifted hackers have already proved that any bank security system can be cracked. Ukrainian police detained two hackers in Poltava that invented an original way of siphoning money from a bank by sending a special worm-type virus into its internal network. These viruses delivered accounts’ information to hackers. Then hackers made a plastic cards to draw money from automatic cash terminal. Local police hold that hackers succeeded in siphoning of more than 100,000 USD within two months. Unfortunately Ukrainian State Legislation still makes no provision for such cybercrime. That is why these two crime suspects most probably will be convicted only for fraud.
