Company Dumps Windows After $40K Hack

"The FBI is helping out the Steuben ARC after overseas hackers stole more than $40,000. Police say the hackers went through an employee's microsoft windows computer system. That worker had access to ARC's bank account.

"Authorities say the crooks were from Eastern Europe and used that information to steal the money. Since then, the Steuben ARC has limited their employee's internet access. They've also switched from a Microsoft operating system to Linux, which is said to be tougher to hack."
