Once again, NEVER hack inside the PRC

Published by at 8:44 am under Chinese Malware,Hacking for money


I found this article this morning from the English language Shanghai Daily.  The article reports that three hackers and an idiot were jailed for using trojan horse programs to steal bank login credentials and then transferred the money to the idiot’s own account.

Yu then used a laptop they bought together to log onto the accounts,
targeting accounts with a great deal of money.

He transferred the money to his own online account. Yu, Chen and Zhao
then drew money out of Yu’s accounts using ATMs in different areas.

They allegedly stole 127,800 Yuan from three victims.  See also Heike’s posts about Hacking for Money and Never Hack Inside China, Ever.  These guys are probably not the  immoral, robotic-like assassins that the PRC government is concerned about.

Update:  I’m having trouble loading the page.  You can find a mirror of the article on the infosec news list archive on Neohapsis here.

    Someone from Racine should hack a bunch of Chinese bank accounts and transfer the funds to Name81′s account.
