Losses from Citibank publicly acknowledged.

What I don't get is how this is news, credit card fraud is a billion dollar industry; why all the fuss over $2.7million?

that's just play money though, not the real stuff.

The only way to make sure people you agree with can speak is to support the rights of people you don't agree with.

The customers will be reimbursed, Sean Kevelighan, a spokesman for the New York-based bank, said in a phone interview today. It’s the first public acknowledgement by Citigroup that the incident resulted in any financial losses.

A million here a million there, it adds up. Most likely it's news because "Hackers" were involved. Media likes that type of thing.

This is news because it helps setting up an Internet kill switch.

"Hackers hacked a bank! Next time they will hack a powerplant! We need to be able to shut down the Internet!"
