FXCM reports hacking

NEW YORK: Online foreign exchange market broker  FXCM said on Thursday it had been hacked in an intrusion that saw money  withdrawn from some customer accounts.

“At this time FXCM has identified  a small number of unauthorised wire transfers from customer accounts,”  the company said in a statement.
