The Russian Central Bank reported that unknown hackers have stolen 339.5 million RUB (the equivalent to approximately 6 million USD) in a cyber-attack on an unnamed Russian bank last year.
The hackers used SWIFT international payments messaging system. A spokesman from the Central Bank said that the hackers had taken control of a computer at the bank they were targeting and used the SWIFT system to transfer money to their own accounts. The culprits remain unidentified.
