It's a tale as old as time. A municipality falls victim to a Hacker and loses a huge chunk of change. This time it's the City of Tallahassee, Florida. The city wasn't hacked directly but their third-party pay roll service was.

Hackers attacked the company, redirected its direct deposits and laughed all the way to their summer resort on the Black Sea (because let's be honest, where else would they go?)

You can read more about the attack here at the Tallahassee Democrat. I'll post more information when it is available.
