The future of attacks on banking systems

If you’re a regular reader of our news site – or, indeed, any other that site that deals with information and computer security – you might sometimes get the impression that it’s just a matter of time until your computer is infected with banking malware and your money stolen by cyber crooks.

But user-oriented attacks are just the first evolutionary stage of this type of attacks, and given the amount of protective measures the banks implement to make these attacks harder and harder as time goes by, the criminals will have to shift to other targets soon.

In this podcast, ACROS Security CEO Mitja Kolsek talks about the other two stages of banking attacks and about what we can expect in the future.
