A quick lesson in internet banking

In our daily work in the field scanning computers for malware and viruses we are finding many variants of the trojans Zeus, Zbot, Hydraq, among others.  We are finding these on computers which are regularly used for internet banking and other financial transactions including using a credit card online. Some of these PC’s actually hold databases with extensive information about a company’s clients such as physical and email addresses.

These types of malicious programs assume the name of legitimate system resources, and want your money from your bank. So far they have been very successful on several continents. The fact that we are finding so many of these bugs on systems here in Perth would indicate Western Australians are also victims.

At Wired Office we are now offering an onsite service to test PC’s for the presence of trojans, and set up advanced, multilayer protection against trojan keyloggers. Keylogger programs are silent and undetectable and either record your keystrokes or hijack a machine,unknown to the user. Standard support rates apply. If you do not require scanning, or if your PC is new for example,  we can set up anti-keylogging on your PC free of charge.
