Three international super-genius hackers have been indicted for using "college-level knowledge of computer programming skills" to steal credit card numbers from customers of Dave & Buster's restaurant.
The master thieves, who targeted the popular home of chicken wings, videogames and carnival midway games, are based in Eastern Europe. The justice department alleged the thieves accessed 11 of the national chain's servers and installed packet sniffers at each. The sniffers snapped up thousands of credit card numbers which were used and sold.
An arrest warrant describes the sniffer program as "efficient, well designed, and uses some algorithms and data structures that reflect college-level knowledge of computer programming skills, whether acquired through self-study ... or formal training."
Damn you, hackers! Is not even Dave and Buster's sacred?
