Why authorities still didn't change retina scan of building after CEO got kidnapped?

  • How exactly would you "change the retina scan of [the] building?" This isn't as simple as changing your password - the CEO can't change his retina pattern on demand. – Steve-O May 30 '17 at 15:21
  • what about 8 billion dollars in vault? then? – The Hawk May 30 '17 at 15:24
  • There was no 8 billion dollars in a vault... ever. – Paulie_D May 30 '17 at 18:50
  • Vault? What vault? It was a bank. – steelersquirrel May 30 '17 at 19:24

The CEO wasn't kidnapped.

He was sprayed with Mace which meant that he had to get his eyes examined for possible damage.

During that examination, his retinal scan was captured without his knowledge.

So, there was no reason to change the retinal scan access as no-one knew it had been compromised.

vault where 8 billion of money stored.

There was no vault with money stored in it.

The vault contained a computer with access to the Bank's headquarters which they needed access to.

Using that access, they could manipulate the computer to

transfer relatively small amounts of money from hundreds of corporations all over South East Asia into her account.

Which totalled $8 billion.

  • I agree. The guy never got kidnapped, so no one thought his security access had been compromised, and the purpose of the exercise was to get ready to hack their way in and steal money electronically; not to physically remove tons of cash from a vault. – Lorendiac May 30 '17 at 23:25
  • @Paulie_D NO WHERE it mentioned he got examined for eyes, by spraying I thought he is getting kidnapped. – The Hawk May 31 '17 at 1:15
