How authentic is this Hadith?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“A time will come when one will not care how one gains one’s money, legally [through halal] or illegally [through haram].”

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith, on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The Hadith is therefore authentic.
