This week's massive cyber-heist was facilitated by the ease with which criminals have learned to hack the magnetic stripe on the back of ATM, debit and credit cards.

Five suspects have been arrested in connection to a bank heist that can only be compared to the movie "Ocean’s Eleven."

The heist resulted in the theft of $45 million from ATMs around the world. How did thieves pull off such a massive scheme? They hacked into the computers of bank card processors.

Kim Zetter of Wired joins us to talk more about this scheme.
