A total of $465,000 was recently stolen from California-based Village View
Escrow via 26 consecutive wire transfers.
"Owner Michelle Marisco said her financial institution at the time —
Professional Business Bank of Pasadena, Calif. — normally notified her by e-mail
each time a new wire was sent out of the company’s escrow account," writes Krebs
on Security’s Brian Krebs. "But the attackers apparently disabled that feature
before initiating the fraudulent wires."
