Programmer find ATM loophole that let him withdraw $1 million in cash

A person working in a bank in china was able to with draw almost $1 million in cash from an ATM machine by finding a flaw/vulnerability in the ATM. There was a flaw that withdrawing around midnight would not produce a removal amount from the persons account. This would normally red flag it but the programmer inserted a script in the system to get around the red flag and was doing it for months before eventually being caught. This person was an internal threat to the system, as he was able to modify the system from the inside to allow him to carry out this attack.
