Ecuadorean Bank Says It Lost $12 Million to Cyber Criminals

Cyber-criminals stole about $12 million from an Ecuadorean bank in a 2015 heist that bears all the hallmarks of later attacks against Bangladesh’s central bank and a small Vietnamese lender. Banco del Austro SA said in a lawsuit filed in New York against Wells Fargo & Co. that hackers got access to the codes the bank uses to move money via Swift, the global interbank network, and used them to transfer funds from the U.S. bank.
