Default Hackers nicked $6 million from a Russian bank

It appears they got away with it

Unknown hackers stole $6 million from a Russian bank last year in an attack using the SWIFT international payments messaging system, the Russian central bank said.

The disclosure, buried at the bottom of a central bank report on digital thefts in the Russian banking sector, is the latest in a string of attempted and successful cyber heists using fraudulent wire-transfer requests.

The central bank said it had been sent information about “one successful attack on the workplace of a SWIFT system operator.”
