Hackers take down websites of 3 Greek banks; demand ransom in bitcoins

http://www.ibnlive.com/news/tech/hackers-take-down-websites-of-3-greek-banks-demand-ransom-in-bitcoins-1170884.html

Hackers have staged cyber-attacks on three Greek banks and demanded a ransom in bitcoins, a virtual monetary unit, to stop their disruption, banking sources said on Monday.

The sources said the hackers managed to block the Internet banking activity of three Greek lenders for a few hours last Thursday but did not penetrate the banks' security or obtain confidential client data or access to accounts.
