    Hi, Maybe some of you will have seen in the UK news today that some cyber criminals tried to syphon off £220 million pounds from the above Japanese bank in London. They somehow installed keyloggers on the banks computers and then one guy tried to 'remove' £13.8 m to a bank account in Israel, unfortunately for him the cops got to him first.
    It makes you wonder how they got through the banks computer defences................maybe an inside job??
