Hackers in Eastern Europe are bleeding banks dry, stealing as much as $1 billion from more than 100 financial institutions in a string of attacks that borrow heavily from targeted attacks against sensitive government and industrial targets.

The attacks date back two years and as many as 100 banks have been in the crosshairs of the Carbanak gang, as well as e-payment systems and other organizations in as many as 30 countries.
