The RBS WorldPay hit is viewed by many as the most sophisticated and well organized cyberfraud operation ever conducted. In 2008 a group of hackers penetrated the network defenses of the US-based financial institution and artificially inflated the limits of 44 re-loadable payroll cards. Then during the course of only twelve hours cloned copies of the compromised cards were used to withdraw an estimated $9 million from more than 2,100 ATMs located in 280 different cities around the world. The fraudulent withdrawals were performed by money mules, who kept between 30 and 50 percent of the funds for themselves.

Ryan Harris2009-09-10 00:00:00 UTC

The evidence presented at trial established that Harris was the owner of TCNISO, a company that distributed products enabling users to steal Internet service. From 2003 through 2009, Harris developed and distributed hardware and software tools that allowed his customers to modify their cable modems so that they could disguise themselves as paying subscribers and obtain Internet service without paying. The products included a “packet sniffer,” which Harris dubbed “Coax Thief.” “Coax Thief” surreptitiously intercepted or “sniffed” Internet traffic so that the user obtained the media access control addresses and configuration files of surrounding modems. TCNISO and Harris also offered ongoing customer support, primarily through forums hosted on the TCNISO website, to assist customers in their cable modem hacking activities. Harris gained $400,000 to $1 million in sales revenue.
