NEW YORK – Federal prosecutors in New York say a gang of cyber-criminals stole $45 million by hacking their way into a database of prepaid debit cards.

Authorities announced Thursday that seven people are under arrest in the case, which involved thousands of thefts from ATMs in 26 countries.

Prosecutors say an eighth person involved in the crime was murdered in the Dominican Republic late last month.

The U.S. Attorney in Brooklyn, Loretta Lynch, called it “a massive 21st Century bank heist.”
