" Eight men have been arrested after a gang stole more than £1m from a high street bank by taking control of one of its computer systems. The money was stolen from a Barclays branch in Swiss Cottage, London, earlier this year, using a device known as a "keyboard, video and mouse" (KVM) switch. The hardware, which can be purchased online for as little as £10 and is the size of a small laptop computer, allowed the gang to transmit the contents of the computer's desktop and take control of the machine remotely. It is believed the device was installed by a man who pretended to be an IT engineer to gain access to the branch. Some £1.3m was withdrawn from accounts, although much of the money has since been recovered." http://uk.news.yahoo.com/arrests-1-3m-barclays-bank-theft-072554030.html#DATSVA3
