Report: Massive Cyberattack on US Banks Planned

Criminals intent on stealing millions of dollars from consumer bank accounts plan to unleash a massive cyberattack on major U.S. banks, security firm McAfee warns in a new report.

McAfee’s report confirms a warning from RSA, the security division of EMC Corp., which said in October that a criminal ring had created an advanced cyberattack to steal money from bank accounts at major banks, according to CNNMoney.

McAfee believes the gang of criminals is set to launch the attack, known as Project Blitzkrieg, this coming spring. The attack, a sophisticated Trojan, had already been successfully tested on at least 300 bank accounts.
