Postbank puts link to Virus Remover from Kaspersky on its web

The attacks on banks continue in cyberspace. And to such an extent that Postbank found the need to warn its users to check their PC and use the Postbank Virus Remover by Kaspersky Lab. Apparently the virus listens for the inlog-code and later on asks for tan-codes to be used in transactions.

Well, we've come a long way since in 1995 or 1996 first virtual demonstrates that it was easy to eavesdrop on the web. By now First Virtual is long gone and the eavesdropping is done professionally. And the importance of user education increases per minute.
