GoogleIt Mail IT Print IT PermaLinkFurther Proof The Ecomonic Spam Solutions Are A Disaster Waiting To Happen

Regular readers know where I stand on economic spam solutions. I almost missed this from a week and a half ago. New Trojans Plunder Bank Accounts:

"We have recently seen a move away from stealing user name and passwords," Shipp said during a panel discussion at the RSA Conference 2006 here on Thursday. The new "bank-stealing Trojans" wait until the victim has actually logged in to their bank. "It then just transfers the money out."

"All of the authentication, little keys you have to have in your hand, biometrical things, it doesn't matter. The bad guy just waits until you're there and then takes the money out," Shipp said.

This new type of Trojan is on the rise and is currently No. 3 on the list of most common threats, according to Shipp.

If there ever is a micropayment solution of any sort for sender-pay email, you can bet that there will be a lot fewer interfaces for it than there are for electronic banking. This stuff will be child's play for spammers. Criminals will not use their own money to pay for their criminal acts. They will use other peoples' money. Always.
