The Soprano breach

I guess this is what we have been seeing the trend - breaches and hacking are not for brownie points and bragging rights. Real, solid criminal enterprises are behind it; as seen by this story about the mafia being busted for hacking into Lexis Nexis databases.

Staggering, the amount of money out there from breaches - else why would enterprises leave the opportunity costs and gross margins of other endeavors (drugs, etc) and flock to this? Or maybe it is the "white-collar"ness of the crime? And maybe less violence?
