20 different type of malware hit US Banks. – 12/24/2012

ZD Net has reported that a Large US bank was attacked by 20 different crimware families.  One of the interesting things pointed out in the article was that for a long time cybercrimanals were trying to attack the infrastructure of the bank.  But, now they changed their focus and are actually atacking the customers.  They consider the customer to be the weakest link and thus they are targeting them.  Most of us have already seen some of these attacks in the form of Phishing so you may already have been aware of this strategy.

Check out the article “Report: Large US bank hit by 20 different crimeware families” and see what some of the different attacks are.
