Trojan virus poses online banking threat to Millions

If you do much online banking as do I almost exclusively without experiencing any negative repercussions since it's inception (for me at least), you need to give this article and others like it you see in the media from time to time a look, and then use the info to make sure your virus and spyware programs on your home computers are up to date, particularly if you don't want to end up surreptitiously broke without spending a single dime while you're asleep at night.

These viruses today are no joke when we look at what's at stake, our identities and life savings in one fell swoop simply for being complacent and careless..Don't be a victim, be informed about the dangers even adults face online when the criminals set their sights on yours and my stuff.

Also make sure your computers are set up to receive Windows updates and a functional firewall is in operation at all times while your computers are connected to the internet ,which for many nowadays with broadband connections means at all times.
Times Online: "Cyber criminals have created a highly sophisticated Trojan virus that steals online banking log-in details from infected computers.

The Clampi virus, which is spreading rapidly across hundreds of thousands of computers in Britain and the United States, infects computers when users visit websites that host a malicious code.

Once on the computer, the virus sits unnoticed until the user logs on to bank, credit card or other financial websites. It then captures log-in and password information and sends it to a server run by the attackers. They can then tell the compromised computer to send money to accounts that they control, or they can buy goods with the stolen credit card details.

The trojan has a list of more than 4,500 finance-related websites that it monitors, including British high street banks. Security experts warned that it was one of the stealthiest and most pervasive threats to computers using the Microsoft Windows operating systems." continued
