Many bank heists can be characterized as Bonnie-and-Clyde style. The thieves break in, grab everything they can and bolt. But the latest, and largest, bank heist ever was a hacking with a signature Ocean's Eleven twist.

More than 100 banks in 30 countries have been hit in highly sophisticated, coordinated cyberattacks. These hackers left almost no trace. We know that $300 million has been stolen for sure, but experts estimate the final tally could be almost $1 billion.

I'm pretty sure that George Clooney and Brad Pitt weren't involved in these heists, but I can definitely see an Ocean's Eleven sequel using this incident. According to cybersecurity firms, hackers were inside multiple banks across the world for two years.
