Go behind the scenes of the biggest cyber heist in history
The Carbanak cybergang once hacked an ATM and forced it to spit all its money out. Instead of trying to physically break into cash machines, Carbanak found a more elegant, stealthy approach.
They hacked into bank networks, learned how the machines worked, then triggered them to spill all the money. They’d swoop past and pick it all up – until they got caught.
