Huge intrusion at the world bank

Some recent news from
Slashdot led me to this story about a massive intrusion into the systems at the World Bank.

Some horrifying highlights:
  • The FBI were the ones who alerted them to this in the Summer of 2007
  • There have been several intrusions from the same IP block in China
  • The most recent known intrusion was a month ago
  • The World Bank admit that EVERYTHING they have is compromised - financial information from countries and companies all over the globe
  • Spyware and keystroke logging programs were apparently installed by consultants from an Indian company, Satyam - apparently a very large, prestigious IT consulting firm.
