Banking Malware

How to Protect Yourself

Do you realy know how banking malware works?Don't click on links you receive in unsolicited emails, texts or social media posts. These could lead to malicious websites and attachments could be malware.

Only install apps from official app stores. Jailbreaking, rooting or disabling any of the default features of your mobile device may leave it more susceptible to malware infections.

Please make use of/install: an antivirus, patches/updates and have a strong firewall in place.

When logging in to your online bank account, be cautious if you're asked for details such as the 3 digit CVV number on the back of your card, the long number on the front of the card, your cards expiry date, or the 4 digit PIN for your card. If the online banking login page you're on does ask for these details, then don't login until you've called your bank to verify that you're logging in to a genuine web page.

Your bank will never ask you to transfer money out of your account and into another. Fraudsters will. If you receive messages, browser pop ups or calls asking you to do this, then don't respond to them. Call your bank immediately.
