    Thieves Found Citigroup Site an Easy Entry

    Think of it as a mansion with a high-tech security system — but the front door wasn’t locked tight.

    Using the Citigroup customer Web site as a gateway to bypass traditional safeguards and impersonate actual credit card holders, a team of sophisticated thieves cracked into the bank’s vast reservoir of personal financial data, until they were detected in a routine check in early May.

    That allowed them to capture the names, account numbers, e-mail addresses and transaction histories of more than 200,000 Citi customers, security experts said, revealing for the first time details of one of the most brazen bank hacking attacks in recent years.

    The case illustrates the threat posed by the rising demand for private financial information from the world of foreign hackers.

    Reading the 2nd page, it may be eastern European hackers who are quite efficient if you believe the article. I hope this is a wake up call for the financial industry to tighten up and start hiring some serious security experts. Now's not the time to cut any corners.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!
