In 2013 a truck was riddled with bullets from an AK-47 near Limburg, the Netherlands, after departing from one of the world's largest container ports in Antwerp. The driver was left unscathed, while drugs hidden in the container carried by the truck was tied to the violent assault.
It might sound like the stuff of a solid crime movie, but this is actually the true story of how the Interpol - along with the Belgian and Dutch police - investigation of the bullet-riddled truck in the fall of 2013 led to a surprising discovery, reports Danish newspaper Berlingske. For several years hackers have controlled the key computer systems that manage the millions of containers handled by the port every year. In this way, the criminals had no difficulties picking out containers loaded with drugs, to be carried by their own drivers.
