While the alleged criminal activity is certainly troubling, all I can think is, “why the Astros?”
The FBI is investigating the St Louis Cardinals on charges that the US baseball team hacked into the computers of a rival club to steal player data, the New York Times has reported.
The alleged cyber-attack against the Houston Astros is thought to be the first time a professional sports team has been hacked by another.
Trade discussions and proprietary statistics were reportedly targeted.
Major League Baseball has confirmed the investigation.
