Federal Reserve Hacker Steals 400,000 Credit Card Numbers
“A Malaysian man hacked his way into the Federal Reserve Bank’s computers in Cleveland and also had more than 400,000 stolen credit card numbers when Secret Service agents finally caught up with him, federal prosecutors said.
Lin Mun Poo was arrested at John F. Kennedy Airport last month as he traveled to New York for a meeting with other hackers and to allegedly exploit some of the stolen information he had obtained, investigators said.
Officials are still looking into how he allegedly hacked his way into well-guarded computer systems at the Federal Reserve and numerous major financial institutions. Poo allegedly traded and profited on information he stole from some of the institutions.”
