WASHINGTON (AP) – If a purse with $900 is stolen, the victim probably would call the police. If a computer hacker steals $900 from that same person’s bank account, what then? Call the police? Could they even help?
NEW YORK (AP) — Three men are in custody on charges they spread a computer virus to more than a million computers worldwide, including at least 40,000 in the US, giving passwords and banking info that allowed hackers to steal tens of millions of dollars.
