*Breaking Reports: Cyber Bank Raid in Progress Targeting US, UK, Euro-zone Banks*

UK’s Sky News has just reported that a huge worldwide cyber bank raid is ongoing- €60 million have been confirmed stolen through 1 server, and a total of €2 billion is estimated to have been stolen through an additional 59 servers!

Sky News is reporting that McAfee Virus has uncovered a series of financial attacks on US, UK, and Euro-zone banks with individual transfers of over €100,000 being reported.

Is this an extension of RBS’ NatWest’s complete banking system melt-down/ cash account rehypothecation, which is now in its 8th day?

Our thoughts are this is either an Iranian ‘Stuxnet’ retaliation, or a false-flag banking system lock up by the Western Central Banks themselves on which they can conveniently pin the blame for an imminent derivatives induced contagion and banking collapse.

 

 

60 million euros stolen from bank accounts in organised cyber bank raid, attacks mainly targeted Italian, German and Dutch banks

 

More as we hear it.

Got PHYZZ!?!?!

Story now back on Sky News’ Website:

By Pete Norman, Sky News Online

Sixty million euro has been stolen from bank accounts in a massive cyber bank raid after fraudsters raided dozens of financial institutions around the world.

According to a joint report by software security firm McAfee and Guardian Analytics, more than 60 firms have suffered from what it has called an “insider level of understanding”.

“The fraudsters’ objective in these attacks is to siphon large amounts from high balance accounts, hence the name chosen for this research – Operation High Roller,” the report said.

If all of the attempted fraud campaigns were as successful as the Netherlands example we describe in this report, the total attempted fraud could be as high as 2bn (£1.6bn).”

The automated malicious software programme was discovered to use servers to process thousands of attempted thefts from both commercial firms and private individuals.

The stolen money was then sent to so-called mule accounts in caches of a few hundreds and 100,000 euro (£80,000) at a time.

Credit unions, large multinational banks and regional banks have all been attacked.

Sky News defence and security editor Sam Kiley said: “It does include British financial institutions and has jumped over to North America and South America.

Security firms McAfee and Guardian Analytics have published a joint fraud report, dubbed Operation High Roller, on new methods of siphoning money from banking systems. Using a series of highly sophisticated cyber attacks to target high balance accounts, criminals have been able to successfully bypass physical “chip and pin” authentication and use server-based fraudulent transactions to steal money from a number of accounts in Europe. The attacks originated in Italy, using SpyEye and Zeus malware to transfer funds into fraudulent accounts….

The majority of attacks appear to have taken place across European banking systems, but McAfee warns that it has found evidence of attacks at Latin American and North American financial institutions too. The company is warning that 60 servers have been processing thousands of attempted thefts from high-value accounts over a period of months, resulting in attempts to steal at least €60 million (US$78 million). McAfee says that if all the attempted fraud attacks were successful then the total attempted fraud could be as high as €2 billion ($2.49 billion).

  1. A raid my ass !! Fleece the people. This is the first of its kind, a trial run if you will.  These are all secure accounts. TPTB could possibly be collecting capital in an illegal manner. taxation w/o representation.

    Remember the Stuxnet was sophisticated too. Where was that traced to? Who has the capability of such sophistication?  Nation States do. I guarantee this did not come from a cave somewhere, as other attacks have been wrongly traced to.
  2. Don’t worry sheeple, they will just create the €2 Billion or so out of the proverbial tin air. No worries, the Ponzi scheme will continue forever. Don’t mind us silver and gold bugs, we’re lunatics. Move along now, nothing to see here.

  3. The wonderful world of cyber power… I could see a MSM site being told not to run a story about it if it’s true as to not cause panic in those who still believe in the paper and banking markets… If people herd that and panicked I think we would start to see a series of bank runs… That’s the last thing the manipulators would want… And yet the sheep would be pulling all there paper out of the banks to keep it safe yet it still wouldn’t save what they have… Maybe just delay the inevitable and and ensure that the Fed can still be the thieve instead of “cyber thieves”…
    If you don’t hold it you don’t own it…

  4. The NatWest situation was of some concern in that if it were a bank run, contagion may follow which would hasten the arrival of the collapse of the global fiat.  This news report makes more sense in that it could be an attack on the banks, with NatWest the trial run before the immediate implementation.  Logic would dictate that if it is a criminal element, they would get in and get out before they would get caught.  A foreign government would not have that fear and would stay in the game until they got there intended results.

    I cannot wait to see which way this goes.

    Keep stackin’.

  5. wow this makes me so happy i only have enough money in my bank to pay bills.

    clearly we’re gonna see alot more problems with ppls money dissapearing or unacsessable from thier accounts, now is probably a good time to warn friends and family who up untill now either haven’t listened or are unsure, they should start paying closer attention.

    sow the seeds and let em grow!

  6. LMAO Glad I don’t have my money in the bank but just enough to pay a bill. As for all those missing dollars or euros whatever, it’s all paper and not Physical and there has to be a trail so I think it will end up that it was attempted, then again I’ll wait and see.

  7. Dont be fooled folks,  The wool has once again been put in front of your eyes.
    This fraud is created entirely by the insolvent banks in Europe as a way to leech the high rollers accounts of their cash, in the Euro banks time of need.  These Banksters are crooks, thieves of the worst kind, and are now covering up their thieving actions with this “Virus” scam.  These Banks use the highest possible encryption, and break-ins are imposable, except for the Banks themselves who are raping their own servers of their clients cash.  In US, MF-Globals customer accounts were stripped in much the same way, except they did it without the bullshit Virus story.

    Wake up.  Dont be fooled by the Banksters bullshit.  Take your funds out of the banks before the Banksters fingers claw your funds away with bullshit virus stories, and invest in physical Silver and Gold, and keep it outside of this filthy and corrupt banking system.  SP.

  8. Somethings up. I read this and decided an hour later to go pull all funds from my bank. I go to Harris/BMO. ATMs are down. This spooks me. I walk into the branch and as I am doing my draw, I ask about the ATMs. Teller states all ATMs are down and her in-branch computer is “Getting real slow, there is some problem”. I pulled all my funds and left.

  9. Are we going to see refunds or not? I suppose the answer to this question must count towards something, or not? I mean, why as a bank steal your clients’ currency and blame it on cyber crime, if you know that you will have to refund them at the end of the day? I mean there are many other legalized ways to steal… or is it a case of banks stealing from banks? I am trying to wrap my head around it and any help will be appreciated. Needless to say, I am not taking anything at face value… there are just too many lies floating in cyber space and elsewhere. To be honest, I am sick and tired of all the lies and deceit.

  10. HEADSUP.  SD, your site is acting strange.  i was able to ping it but, no reply back when i attempt to access your default website directly by URL.  its been like this for the last 10 minutes and i finally just got in here to post this

  11. Cloaked There is a complete shut out here in South Africa as well. The sheeple go about their business completely unaware of what’s going on in the rest of the world.

    P.S. herbaltea You’re right… I think they’re trying to bring the site down.

  12. I have noticed failures to load, but no 404 page, all day. The Doc might be a little too close to the truth for the PTB to tolerate this site’s operation. If they just take it down blatantly, everyone will go for their throat via physical silver.
    The July OI is enormous, we might see a ‘cyber raid’ on banks to cover their *ahem* liberation of customer’s funds.  

  13. Hey Cloaked,

    Sorry to repeat what you said.  When I read the article, Silverbullion was the only poster.  I made my post and the server said that there was an illegal operation.  I had to get out and go back in. Your post was still not listed but mine was.  Go figure.  Seems we are on the same sheet of music.

  14. SGT Report was the first place I saw this story. Good thing I had my little bank run yesterday after the story of an international consulting firm was hired by one of the “BIG BANKS” n NEW YORK More than 900 accountants are in for an “emergency”! And they are still arriving!!!! Paying double the usual fee too!!

  15. Cloaked To help M45: How many coins are you holding in your previous
    life? NONE Who was the star that was accidentally killed when his parents had
    a fall out? NO IDEA What is you favorite genre of music? MUSICALS  This went away above my pea brains. LMAO No idea what your talking about. LMAO

  16. This article just stated that this was YOUR fault that THEY had your money accessed.

    When you have your money in a bank to be safe, you must..
    1.First, you have to run some sort of anti-virus software.

    2.
    Second, never, ever, ever open a link in an “official” e-mail message you receive
    3.

    Third, update your software


    You were even told ” watching that Tree Girl video ” caused this.

    Expensive lesson IMO.
    Lesson learned, dont use banks to protect your loot.
  17. Well that explains a lot don’t it. The bullshit we have been getting from Natwest. That’s why people haven’t been able to get at their money. They have either been raided or they shut the system down because an alert went out, I think the former.

  18. Interesting Sky is saying the Servers used to steal the money are mostly based in Russia. Oh I don’t like the look of this. How would they know where the servers were, surely the transactions would be diverted through proxy servers to make them untraceable. Or have I been watching too much TV.

    This has false flag written all over it. You notice how they throw MI5 into the story.

    Sixty million euro has been stolen from bank accounts in a
    massive cyber bank raid after fraudsters raided dozens of financial institutions
    around the world.

    According to a joint report by software security firm McAfee and Guardian
    Analytics, more than 60 firms have suffered from what it has called an “insider
    level of understanding”.

    “The fraudsters’ objective in these attacks is to siphon large amounts from
    high balance accounts, hence the name chosen for this research – Operation High
    Roller,” the report said.

    “If all of the attempted fraud campaigns were as successful as the
    Netherlands example we describe in this report, the total attempted fraud could
    be as high as 2bn (£1.6bn).”

    The automated malicious software programme was discovered to use servers to
    process thousands of attempted thefts from both commercial firms and private
    individuals.

    The stolen money was then sent to so-called mule accounts in caches of a few
    hundreds and 100,000 euro (£80,000) at a time.

    Credit unions, large multinational banks and regional banks have all been
    attacked.

    Sky News defence and security editor Sam Kiley said: “It does include British
    financial institutions and has jumped over to North America and South
    America.

    “What they have done differently from routine attacks is that they have got
    into the bank servers and constructed software that is automated.

    “It can get around some of the mechanisms that alert the banking system to
    abnormal activity.”

    The details of the global fraud come just a day after the MI5 boss warned of
    the new cyber security threat to UK business.

    McAfee researchers have been able to track the global fraud, which still
    continues, across countries and continents.

    “They have identified 60 different servers, many of them in Russia, and they
    have identified one alone that has been used to steal 60m euro,” Kiley said.

    “There are dozens of servers still grinding away at this fraud – in effect
    stealing money.”

  19. Here’s a question,

    am I the only one who has noticed that there has been little talk or mention or analysis in the past little while about the upcoming July 28 and July 1 sanctions (U.S. sanctions on banks dealing with Iran and European Union sanctions against all Iranian oil imports due to kick into gear)?

    Maybe these won’t mean much, but I was under the impression that these sanctions were forcing China/Russia/Iran’s hands and were signficant for the future of the $US and AU/AG…

    So… why is no one talking about these things?

    Just curious. Seems odd that there’s no talk of this of late.

  20. Line of reasoning:
    Supposition 1: The global ponzi-scheme “economy” is doomed – probably sooner rather than later
    Supposition 2: The established interests in control can only “extend and pretend” to delay a collapse
    Supposition 3: While we may be fooled into thinking the staus quo can maintain, not so the “elites”
    Supposition 4: Knowing we’re all ultimately screwed, the elites are making preparations
    Inference: Better, if doom is certain, to be sure of the doom to all degrees possible.  The elites are preparing while extending and pretending – and then when they’re ready, they’ll make the decision to “pull it” to quote the archcriminal Larry Silverstein – allowing them to maximize the efficiency of the recovery (Heil Harper).
    Consideration: These computer-based banking problems could be prepared charges exploding throughout the structure so as to allow the most perfectly pre-planned collapse.

    Of course no one is talking about them. The media tells you about them in short, then it goes away. These are cold war economic tactics used to try to make Iran make the first move into the hot war. I know you understand that, you stated it. Its not covered so masses forget about the sanctions. Then the hot war, initiated by Iran through sanction provocation, will take over headlines across the globe. Sanctions long forgotten.
  22. Surely those pushing this do not hink people are stupid enough to believe someone stole our ones and zeros and put them in another account, seriously ?!!

    There is no actual money being stolen and to say so is total BS. Back up last nights computers, SWIFT system is self contained and tracable.

    The zeros can’t just show up in an account in the Bahamas.

    Good to see the posts here reflect a certain healthy sceptasism.

  23. Ummm the only outlet I have found running this story is SKY, if this was big news it would be everywhere. Also just reading in the the Telegraph they are blaming the RBS debacle on a junior tech guy in India, don’t believe a word of it. I guess the other papers are either suspicious of the story or are deliberately avoiding it.
