    This month, the Crown Casino, Australia's largest, alerted police that a foreigner had hacked into its security surveillance system and scammed the casino for $33 million, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) reported.

    Security experts believe the Crown's own methods of surveillance and protection were used against it. According to ABC, Crown has high-resolution cameras that pan, tilt and zoom in on gaming tables, which the unknown thief, who was playing at high stakes VIP tables, gained access to, allowing him to have the content phoned into him via an earpiece he was wearing.
