To Catch A Cyberthief

Wells Fargo & Co. says it will pay a $100,000 reward for information leading directly to the arrest and conviction of thieves responsible for stealing computers from the office of an analyst the banking and financial-services provider hired. The systems contained confidential data about some of Wells Fargo's customers. Wells Fargo last week notified the customers whose names, addresses, Social Security numbers, and credit account numbers were stolen. No passwords or PINs were pilfered. The company said in a statement that it's monitoring the at-risk accounts, changing their account numbers, and adding a Credit Alert report to their credit reports.
