World Bank Group's computer network hacked

I just dont know how to process this one...

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,435681,00.html

From the article:

"In plainspeak: "They had access to everything," says the source. "They had the keys to every room at the bank. And we can't say whether they still do or don't until we fully and openly address what's happening here."

The data raids are not a matter of stealing inconsequential bits and bytes. The World Bank's data center is literally a treasure trove of vital financial information from around the globe. As a clearinghouse for financial data from both governments and companies, the bank's computers could provide intruders with both a financial and intelligence gold mine — from inside information on bids and contracts to the minutes of confidential board meetings.

If the bank takes a position in a currency, for example, that currency usually moves in response to the bank's actions. Stocks and bonds can also swing up and down based on World Bank announcements. "If you know beforehand that the bank is going to put an order in for oil pipelines in Chad or healthcare systems in India, you can actually make a good amount of money," says one insider."

I would laugh,......

if they moved funds from it and no one could ever trace it!
That would be a slap in the face.

That's

a relief. I can not imagine any hacker being as corrupt as the World Bank or the other leaders. Maybe they found some juicy bits they could throw to the rest of us little peeps.
