Munich (dpa / lby) - According to Bavaria's Minister of Justice Georg Eisenreich (CSU), nobody has to have mountains of cash at home for fear of hacker attacks. "Nobody has to hoard tons of cash under their pillows," he said in an interview with the media group "Münchner Merkur/tz" (Friday). "In the event of a disaster, state systems always take action. Until the state emergency systems take effect, a reasonable amount of cash will suffice."
