that news couple of years ago both in English and Chinese.  The

a bank he used work for, NOT for HACKING.  According to Chinese law,
any criminal commited to crime that evolves more than $100,000 
(the exact number might be wrong) can be sentenced to death.

The story I read had it as two individuals.  The not-so-bright one who had
access to the bank and the bright one who designed and built a device to
put inline at the bank.  The device diverted the equiv of pennies per
transaction that passed through it to a bank account that the two had set
up somewhere.  It was a brilliant scheme.  They screwed up by trying to
withdrawl huge amounts of money at a time.  THAT's what got them caught.

Isn't that the plot to Superman III?
