Cyber crime hits banks in Cheshire

From the WRA:

Hackers targeting a New Jersey-based credit card processing company collected personal financial information on thousands of consumers and are believed to have swapped the information in an online black market...

Investigators believe some of the stolen information traveled over the Internet, possibly to Eastern Europe, before ending up in the hands of American thieves. Among the victims were an undetermined number of local customers of banks in Cheshire, Litchfield and Naugatuck. (BY JONATHAN SHUGARTS)
