Development of information technology leads to the fact that electronic communication affect more and more new areas, and all deeper into our everyday lives. Many of us can not imagine their life outside Internet, it became part of our lives. But along with this growing and internet crime, each year an increasing number of Internet attacks. In the first five months of 2008, Internet attacks have been more than 205 financial institutions in the world in order to obtain customer data. Peak attack occurred in May, in which the attacks were more than 200 banks.
Computer criminals commit an attack from different countries, but headed the list from year to year United States. Only in May this year, 61 banks were victims of precisely the American criminals. However, the United States is headed not only the list of countries where Internet attacks occur, but the list of countries which account for the attack. U.S. financial institutions – a tasty morsel for hackers, so the U.S. banks account for half of all attacks. Unenviable position in this regard is China, which accounts for 11 dollars percent of the attacks. Next come the United Kingdom, Germany, France and South Korea.
With the attacks is actively fighting center RSA – Security Division of EMC, an American manufacturer of software and storage systems information. For more clarity and thought, follow up with financial technology and gain more knowledge.. Center RSA discovers and tracks down the block malware attacks in more than 300 organizations worldwide, and operates 24 hours 7 days a week. One of the latest and most serious threats which have found the Centre virus is "Zeus". Zeus – a new technology of computer attacks on financial institutions, he combines the delivery of e-mails, and Trojans. The virus was launched by a known group of computer pirates Rock Phish, which was founded in 2004. The main purpose of this group are financial institutions around the world. It is assumed that more than half the attacks in the world – the work of Rock Phish. Also on their account is credited with stealing tens of millions of dollars bank accounts of users.
