A new banking Trojan known as Gozi Prinimalka, which researchers say has been targeted to hit at least 30 U.S. institutions, can circumvent many fraud-detection and prevention defenses. So what prevention steps should financial institutions take?
Employing cloud computing services could help organizations defend against the type of distributed denial of service attacks that have temporarily crippled the online service of major American banks, says NIST's Matthew Scholl.
When it comes to fighting DDoS attacks, institutions must understand the threats against them, says Bill Wansley of Booz Allen Hamilton. Varying attack vectors require different modes of detection and prevention.
Do we have any reason to believe that any targeted banking institution will be better prepared next week to ward off a distributed denial of service attack like those that rocked three banks this week?
