Bangladesh's central bank was vulnerable to hackers because it did not
have a firewall and used second-hand, $10 switches to network computers
connected to the SWIFT global payment network, an investigator into one
of the world's biggest cyber heists said.

The shortcomings made it easier for hackers to break into the Bangladesh
Bank system earlier this year and attempt to siphon off nearly $1 billion
using the bank's SWIFT credentials, said Mohammad Shah Alam, head of
the Forensic Training Institute of the Bangladesh police's criminal
investigation department.
