Re: Irony is so bitter sweet
Who's to say it wasn't a distraction? Keep them distracted with the 800 million transaction while they clear up loose ends and make off with the 80 million transaction... Yeah, I don't think it was a mistake.. Pople that hack into banks and steal 80mil DON'T MAKE MISTAKES.

Irony is so bitter sweet
People tend to say that only death and taxes are constant. It seems like irony is another given. At least I've seen it many times in the past and continue to see it, even today. It's definitely ironic that the hackers probably spent a lot of time to figure out exactly how to hack into the Bangladesh bank only to see a significant portion of their efforts wasted due to a spelling mistake. In addition, it seems strange that while the bank's network was breached through a Hi-Tech exploit, a simple low tech request for spelling clarification/validation resulted in foiling a significant financial portion of the plot.

I know this fairly new but has this been tracked to a group/individual or has there been any data scraped to suggest origin of the attack?

Re: c'mon...makes you think that their cat jumped on the keyboard. I wonder how many times those furry critters foil plans like this seriously.
You think that they would do a much stricter job of spell checking when trying to exfiltrate hundreds of millions.
