Hackers hit church’s collection plate

| July 3, 2011

(CBS News)  DES MOINES, Iowa – At St. Ambrose Cathedral in Des Moines, Iowa, a mid-day offering holds special meaning.

"It's gone," Bishop Richard Pates tells CBS News chief investigative correspondent Armen Keteyian. "You kind of have to take a deep breath and you have to trust in the Lord."

What was gone – all gone – was the more than $680,000 the diocese had just raised to help the homeless and abused women.

It was swiped in a covert attack by hackers.

"Why would they do it in a particular time, where we had the greatest amount of funds available?" Pates asked.
