Malware that Forges Bank Statements
This is brilliant:
The sophisticated hack uses a Trojan horse program installed on the victim's machine that alters html coding before it's displayed in the user's browser, to either erase evidence of a money transfer transaction entirely from a bank statement, or alter the amount of money transfers and balances.
If there's a moral here, it's that banks can't rely on the customer to detect fraud. But we already knew that.
