John Austen was the arresting police officer in this case. John now lectures
computer crime at Royal Holloway's Information Security Masters
http://isg.rhbnc.ac.uk/John_Austen.htm in London, where the Citibank hack is
an annual case study lecture. I can't remember the entire details (it was
several years ago when I graduated) but the account below is pretty
accurate.

Bob, your message seems to imply that I am misinforming.  Where specifically
do you think I have misinformed?
"Re-check" what?!


Whoa... I Shoulve addressed this to Bob myself as I was only meaning to
answer This message. But since you bring it up I should only inform you of
the following: During the past few months I've had the opportunity work out
here in New York with some really great people one of them being top
security wiz/guru whom was actually working with Citibank at the time of
this incident. We've spoken about it frequently as we are both in the
security field, (security engineering, product engineering, etc) killall -9
info... Anyways this happened according to a source on possibly HP-UX (I
have to confirm what flavor Unix but will send a pvt msg to anyone that
wants to know.) Anyways according to the source, the actual hack was caught
from the beginning and was separated and monitored throughout the whole time
in an effort to catch the perpetrators.

S'from what I've heard, would the person lie? Highly doubtable and I'd put
my faith and trust in him.


1] where is your head at?
2] can you get your ego out of this problem?

Fisticuffs, anyone?!


1] S'been on the underground comp security scene for the past 4 years
2] I've no ego problem you've a perception problem perhaps

Fisticuffs? Over an answer? Get a life.

Within the past one to two three years, CitiBank was relieved of a large
amount of money electronically by Russian crackers.  I believe the total
was about US$10,000,000.  The money was not recovered and the crackers
were not identified or caught.
