did someone muck with the backend here

Re: Heist

1

The big reveal will be that it's those guys from the movie Office Space. It took them a few decades, but they've finally got their new plan worked out.

To the OP -- does that mean the plucky female FBI agent was part of the heist from the beginning?

Whoa! That changes everything!

That surprise worked just like the ones in the book I'm reading. Good job, heebie!

The FBI agent was so practical/sporty looking that you never thought the handsome villain would go for someone like her until you see her in the bikini and realize the depth of her duplicity. The sensible ponytail wasn't actually to be sensible!

"the depth of her duplicity" -- you mean she even went so far as to hide her hot bod?

She had one of those FBI uniforms. The audience knew she was hot from her cinched belt and *pow* dimensions, but they also could tell that the other characters couldn't detect it.

6: Did they make jokes about her only becoming an FBI agent, because Hooters wouldn't hire her?

That article is like the least useful PSA ever. "Something terrible maybe will happen to some unnamed banks with some unspecified vulnerabilities."

7: They were like, "You know what FBI stands for?" and she said, "Federal Bureau of Investigations," and she was totally distracted, rifling through all these papers on her desk that her supervisor had just dropped down with great fanfare and then walked off silently.

The other agent goes, "No, Female Body Inspector!" and the office dies laughing. Like, agents rocking back on the back two legs of their chair so that they can hold their bellies because they're chortling so hard. One guy by the keurig machine makes the breast-honking motions with his hands, and his buddy slaps him on the back while holding the other hand to his forehead, because it's so funny.

8: Maybe it's a plot to start a bank run.

Then she throws a perfect spiral with a football through a nearby tire hanging from the ceiling, and they all sort of frown good-naturedly and think, "Maybe she's all right after all!" and there's more patting each other on the back.

Later, the other agent has been murdered--he was actually a mule for The Cartel, and they thought he had crossed them but he really was carrying The MacGuffin. As she pulls out her autopsy tools, she wryly snarks, "you did say I was a female body inspector."

Near the end of the movie, she needs her partner to pat down the glamorous sexy villain, and all she has to do is mutter, "hey! Remember what FBI stands for?" with her gun trained on the villainess, and he smirks and goes and pats her down and finds all the money.

8. Krebs' source article mentions two banks, a small US bank and an Indian bank, that were hacked and goes into a little detail about how the malware got in.

It's a running gag.

The best action movies have their plots structured around pun delivery.

It's so great that the FBI is still in 2018 advising banks that 2FA is a useful thing to do.

As we know, banks use 0FA.

18. Has there been a conversation about Sarah Jeong? I missed it if yes, but haven't been checking in so often...

20: My take: she's a really good reporter and I'm sorry she's moving to an outlet that I don't check very often.
