Hackers steal taxpayer money

Computer hackers are blamed for stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from taxpayers in one Kentucky county.

The Bullitt County attorney says the county is out more than $400,000 dollars.

Someone hacked into an e-mail, changed passwords on a bank account, and distributed the money to other accounts.

So far, the county has been able to recover only about $46,000 dollars of the stolen money.
