Have you ever  wanted to accuse your opponents of exploiting waterfall bugs in a game that doesn't have waterfalls?

YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!

Want to know something interesting? Hackers prefer your Facebook info to your bank account. While bank accounts can be drained, banks are vigilant against such theft and react swiftly. Banks are also capable of reversing, tracking, and investigating intrusions, making them a tough target for the average hacker.
