Sign of the times
Cybercriminals have had great success over the past year hitting banks where their security is the weakest--on their customers' PCs. In 2009, online fraud losses doubled, according to FBI data.
Now banks are starting to hit back, focusing not only on the security of their own systems, but of their customers' systems. Last week, security firm Trusteer announced it would provide a service to banks that lets them remotely analyze computers belonging to customers who have been hacked.
