US officials warn latest hack campaign of the year got 500 million financial records

"Federal officials warned companies Monday that hackers have stolen more than 500 million financial records over the past 12 months, essentially breaking into banks without ever entering a building.

"We're in a day when a person can commit about 15,000 bank robberies sitting in their basement," said Robert Anderson, Jr., executive assistant director of the FBI's Criminal Cyber Response and Services Branch.

The U.S. financial sector is one of the most targeted in the world, FBI and Secret Service officials told business leaders at a cybersecurity event organized by the Financial Services Roundtable. The event came in the wake of mass hacking attacks against Target, Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase and other financial institutions.

is anybody going to get some new legislation ? give more police and powers ? control more services if they are following regulations ? fine some people so they won't forget ?

nah, they don't panick when they give those numbers like that, so why should you

maybe it ain't true and it ain't so bad

because if it was really bad than he probably would be acting otherwise and would ask for resources and new regulations
