Update: Not sure where the $104 million figure comes from. The article says $81 million which is what has been reported elsewhere.

Investigators examining the theft of $104 million from Bangladesh’s central bank have uncovered evidence of three hacking groups — including two nation states — inside the bank’s network but say it was the third, unidentified group that pulled off the heist, according to two people briefed on the progress of the bank’s internal investigation.
FireEye Inc., the company hired by the bank to conduct the forensics investigation, identified digital fingerprints of hacking groups from Pakistan and North Korea, the two people said. It hasn’t found enough data to determine whether the third group, the actual culprit, was a criminal network or the agent of another nation.
