Russian Hackers Stole the Nasdaq

In October 2010, a Federal Bureau of Investigation system monitoring U.S. Internet traffic picked up an alert. The signal was coming from Nasdaq (NDAQ). It looked like malware had snuck into the company’s central servers. There were indications that the intruder was not a kid somewhere, but the intelligence agency of another country. More troubling still: When the U.S. experts got a better look at the malware, they realized it was attack code, designed to cause damage.


October 2010 but only being reported today? Right.


Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

Strange to report this so far after the fact. It's obviously not a big panic, but the reality is someone with highly sophisticated exploit capability had a run of the NASDAQ network for several months.
I don't know what's worse these guys running a root kit on the market or the bankers which essentially do the same thing.
