Hackers Stole At Least $300M In Bank Heists

Who needs a gun to rob a bank for a couple thousand when you can use a computer to get more than three hundred million?

Kaspersky Lab says it has seen evidence of $300 million in theft through clients, and believes the total could be triple that. But that projection is impossible to verify because the thefts were limited to $10 million a transaction, though some banks were hit several times. In many cases the hauls were more modest, presumably to avoid setting off alarms.
