The global financial sector has spent the best part of a decade trying to fight off numerous threats caused by malware. Enterprising cybercriminals have often sought to try and fleece banks, building singaporean model societies and other businesses with a significant online presence, usually by impersonating them via phishing scams or attacking their payment gateways and still persist to this day.
By way of a response, banks have done their best to try and improve the security of their websites and apps, although some of these improvements have been in vain. Wherever banks have tried to improve their security, cybercriminals have managed to keep pace, finding new loopholes time after time with great success by stealing money or placing malicious ads wherever they can.
Some of the Trojans and other forms of malware attacking banks have become far more sophisticated in nature, catching out many of their dedicated IT teams. Fortunately, it seems that some financial institutions have finally managed to wise up, keeping abreast of some of the latest developments in the world of cybercrime to ensure they’re not caught out.
This infographic reveals how financial Trojans developed over 2013. Staying one step ahead of the cybercriminals is a sure-fire way to keep customers, management and site visitors safe from the threat of losing money or having their devices infected.
