BANGKOK: Two German men were arrested for allegedly hacking Internet banking information from a teacher, causing her to lose 700,000 baht (RM69,000), the Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.

Pol Col Supisan Pakdinaruenart, acting commander of the Crime Suppression Division told a news conference that police arrested the two men at a house in the resort town of Pattaya.

The men had allegedly hacked information from Internet banking transactions of Col Khatthiyaporn Kamart, a lecturer at Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy.

They allegedly used a computer virus to steal information from the victim and transferred money from her Bangkok Bank account to an account of a Thai man they hired.

The men were traced by police and arrested after they withdrew funds from an ATM in Chonburi. — Bernama
