AT&T hacking suspects arrested

Philippine police and the FBI have arrested four people over a hacking operation that targeted customers of US telecommunications giant AT&T to funnel money to a Saudi-based militant group. Those arrested in Manila were paid by the same group the Federal Bureau of Investigation accuses of having funded the November 2008 attacks in Mumbai, the Philippines' Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) said. The hacking activity resulted in almost $2m in losses incurred by AT&T, the CIDG said in a statement.
