The Chaos Computer Club, a band of hackers
from Hamburg, showed the real power of ActiveX
last week.

On German national television, they showed off an
ActiveX control that is able to snatch money from one
bank account and deposit it into another, all without
the customary personal identification number (PIN)
that is meant to protect theft.
