Attempt to Steal $440 million with KeyLogger

The KeyLogger is a device that attaches to a keyboard connection and records all key strokes for up to weeks of data or ”account data in this case”. It would have been responsable for the biggest Bank Heist in History if the heist had not been foiled and the money recovered. They attempted to steal $440 million. The device was installed by thieves masquerading as cleaning staff with the help of a security guard installed hardware keystroke loggers on computers within the London branch of Sumitomo Mitsui which is a huge Japanese Bank.

The Bank has now decided to use Super-Glue on the keybords so that this incident doesn’t happen again. Smart ! No ?
If you are interested on buying such a device, it sells for $89.
