Some unlucky Macau high-roller just had HKD 3m (US $386k) pilfered by cyber-thieves a.k.a Hackers.
Last week, the Judiciary Police revealed they had been contacted on Jan. 24 by employees of a VIP gaming room who claimed two men had withdrawn the money from the player’s casino account. (The casino was not identified beyond being located on Avenida da Amizade).
The two men claimed to have the player’s permission to take the money so the casino called the phone number listed in the account to verify their story, which checked out.
The employees had no way of knowing hackers had broken into the casino’s IT and changed the number in the account to that of an accomplice. Eager to crack the case before some high-roller busted a vein wondering what happened to his bankroll, the police sprang into action.
Following a forensic check of the casino’s technology, police arrested two Guangdong computer programmers on Friday. One of the two men who’d shown up at the casino remains at large and the Macau Post Daily quoted police saying the men were believed to be members of a criminal organization. And presumably a few role-playing games?
