Trojans

Protect your personal information

Trojans are harmful programs that steal personal information. They can be installed from scam emails or infected websites. The user may not even know that they are infected. Due to their rapidly evolving nature, anti-virus software is often ineffective against Trojans.

What are the implications?

Trojans can detect the passwords typed when logging into Online banking and credit card details entered when shopping online. Criminals will then use these details to commit fraud.

When a customer attempts to log in to online banking, some advanced Trojans can introduce fake additional pages or redirect the user to a spoofed website. These are an attempt to trick unsuspecting people into disclosing sensitive information.

What can I do?

The most effective protection is to keep your computer’s security up-to-date:

  • Protect yourself by downloading Rapport, the free security software from the financial security experts at Trusteer.
  • Report any suspected fraud to your bank immediately.
