Hackers Demand Big Money For Aussie Bank Account Info
International hackers are demanding big money for stolen information on Australian credit and debit cards and bank accounts, according to security vendor Dell Secureworks.
Credentials for Australian ANZ bank accounts with balances of A$23,827, $29,029 and $89,156 have been on offer for US$2250, $3800 and $4750 respectively, Secureworks reports.
