describe the imageChelan County Treasurer David Griffiths says Leavenworth's hospital district stands to recover less than half the $1 million stolen in an online banking theft.

Griffiths told The Wenatchee World another $479,000 is gone. It was taken in April by hackers who cracked the account for the public hospital district that runs Cascade Medical Center. Suspected that the money was stolen with a keylogger on an employee's computer. And guess how that keylogger got on the workstation: social engineering. They should have done some more security awareness training. More at the WenatcheeWorld News Site.
