It was reported last month that Burlington, a small northwest Washington town, was victimized by computer hackers who transferred $400,000 out of a city account. The money was electronically transferred to various personal and business accounts throughout the United States during a two-day period in October. The theft was reported by city officials. Employees with the City were notified that personal information may have been taken as well. Authorities say the transfers took place between a Tuesday night and the following Wednesday morning. The hacked Bank of America account was frozen and police and the Secret Service are investigating. Burlington is a city of about 8,400 people, located roughly 60 miles north of Seattle.
