U.S. authorities are investigating the theft of an estimated tens of millions
of dollars from Citibank by hackers partly using Russian software tailored for
the attack, according to a news report.
The security breach at the major U.S. bank was detected mid-year based on
traffic from Internet addresses formerly used by the Russian Business Network
gang, The Wall Street Journal said Tuesday, citing unnamed government sources.
The Russian Business Network is a well-known group linked to malicious software,
hacking, child pornography and spam. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is
probing the case, the report said.
