ABN AMRO intensifies campaign to inform customers about viruses and risks

See this press release of the ABN AMRO Press Room to find out that this week's phishings expedition resulted in 4 people activating a virus and allowing a man-in-the-middle attack. Criminals immediately exploited the vulnerabilities by executing urgent transfers. ABN AMRO immediately compensated these four customers and have now taken the urgent-payment-transfer offline. Furthermore ABN AMRO intensifies its customer awareness programme with five rules:
1- check the lock and the ABN AMRO certificate,
2- always check the actual payments via the PC
3- never open e-mails from someone you don't know
4- only install software from trusted sources
5- protect your pc with a virus-scanner and a firewall.

Let's hope this helps.
