New Cyber Attack Targets Bank Customers’ Accounts


Updated on Thu Dec 13, 2012

Another major cyber attack is threatening the country’s largest banks and financial institutions. And this one isn’t just going to stop you from accessing a website — it may be an attempt to steal customer funds, according to a report by McAfee Labs.

Called Project Blitzkrieg, the hacker campaign employs malware that is supposedly lying dormant in U.S. financial systems — and scheduled to go active by the spring of 2013.

According to the report, the targets of the campaign include Fidelity, E*Trade, Charles Schwab, PayPal, Citibank, Wachovia (now Wells Fargo), Wells Fargo, Capital One, Navy Federal Credit Union and more.
