Submission + - ZeuS Beats Phishing as Greatest Threat to Banks (securityweek.com)

wiredmikey writes: A rapid shift in the prevalence of real-time attacks from online banking trojans, such as ZeuS, are now more common than password phishing attacks, according a survey of financial services professionals at more than 70 banks. Organizations lack understanding about what to do to protect against these threats.

Real-time attacks from online banking trojans (ZeuS, Clampi, etc), also referred to as Man-In-The-Middle attacks, are seen as the greatest threat to online banking today for more than half (51%) of survey respondents, and 69% indicated an increase in the frequency of these attacks over the last 12 months. In fact, 37% of respondents reported that online banking trojans are the most prevalent type of attack at their bank.
