CNN: Sarkozy's bank account hacked

Not a lot of details, but it's likely a phishing attack, malware, or an inside job.

The French Cabinet's spokesman says "swindlers" have broken into the personal bank account of President Nicolas Sarkozy.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy reported the theft from his account last month, say media.

Spokesman Luc Chatel told France's Radio-J an investigation is under way and insists the incident "proves that this system of checking (bank accounts) via the Internet isn't infallible." He did not elaborate.
