Standard Bank tackles online fraud.
Standard Bank estimates that the antiphishing software it made
available to its account holders free of charge at the beginning of June
prevented more than R4m in potential fraud within a week. It warned 120
clients they were in the process of revealing their login details to a
scam website. The package that Standard Bank distributed, called
Rapport, had been downloaded by 178,000 clients and found 7,600 of their
computers were infected with malware. Of these malware infections, 380
were believed to be serious cases aimed at stealing confidential data.
It also found that more than 1,300 Standard Bank clients had been duped
into visiting 'phishing' sites designed to persuade them to
reveal user names, passwords and PINs.
