According to Action News,  a group of cyber-criminals hacked into the Downingtown School District’s bank account and stole $665,000 “Upon further investigation by these agencies, it was discovered that unbeknownst to anyone in the district three wire transfers had been sent to foreign bank accounts,” said Superintendent Dr. Mussoline of The Downingtown School District. Authorities won’t say how exactly they planned to locate all the money and return it to district accounts. But luckily they did. However, law enforcement officials did say this is a prime example of sophisticated cyber criminals at work, and it’s a good reminder to anyone with a bank account to keep close track of all activity”. Now imagine if a group of cyber-criminals can get away with a heinous crime. How much money they can steal from your personal bank account without even having to hold you up at gun point? Cyber criminals can do it electronically! All the authorities would do is  telling you is make sure to keep a close eye on your bank account and recognize any irregularities. But how would you know if you don’t have anything blocking the cyber criminal from entering your computer? Luckily for you there is a solution to this and its name is Bot Revolt.
