Sometimes it doesn’t really matter how many layers of security your bank has if your personal computer is infected. A victim of Chinese hackers using the Korean bank Hana, may…or may not have learned this lesson:
According to investigators at Seoul’s Gangnam Police Station, the hackers breached the online account of the victim, identified only as Seok, on Jan. 5, and moved money from the account three times, 7 million won at a time, despite Seok having been tipped off by Kookmin Bank earlier that day that her online bank account had been accessed by a user from a suspicious Internet protocol (IP) address based in China that had been used in another hacking attempt in August last year.
