    Officials in a suburban Philadelphia school system say computer hackers stole more than half a million dollars from the district, but authorities have recovered the money.
     
    Downingtown Area administrators said Friday that they discovered irregularities in a district bank account two days ago.

      An investigation by local law enforcement and the FBI revealed that three wire transfers totaling $665,000 had been sent to foreign bank accounts.
     
    Superintendent Lawrence Mussoline says the money has been recovered, but the investigation is ongoing.
