"Criminals follow the money"
Online crime is big business - and right now, criminals see huge opportunities in attacking consumers who bank online. There is a sharp increase in attacks using banking trojans - hard-to-notice, seemingly harmless malware that spies on the user. With a banking trojan, an attacker can steal a person's ID, password, and personal information - essentially everything needed to get into the user's account and steal their money.

But bank websites are secure, right?
Your customers might feel safe, assuming that banks have invested heavily in security. And banks have – on their own side. So criminals target ordinary people. Even with proper security software installed, users are still vulnerable to banking-related attacks: they can be tricked into clicking a phishing link, installing a dangerous file, even giving out their passwords over email.
