San Jose, CA (PRWEB) November 08, 2012
nProtect, Inc., a global leader in internet security solutions, reports an increasing number of phishing emails and websites targeting financial institutions and online payment services.
Phishing emails and websites pretending to be legitimate companies are used by cyber-criminals to steal online users' personal identity and account credentials such as ID, password and credit card numbers using various hacking methods including installing programs on users' PCs and mobile devices to steal keystroke typing and touch screen input.
“Infecting victims’ PCs with fake emails and sites containing malware have been around for a long time, but it continues to be a problem because many people are still unaware of the dangers of opening suspicious emails and ultimately having their securities breached,” says Mr. YK Paek, managing director of nProtect, Inc. “In order to prevent such incidents from occurring, users need to be aware of the potential threats of clicking on suspicious links and opening attached files in e-mails by getting into the habit of always checking their e-mail for malware and having the most up-to-date security programs.”
Using nProtect OnlineSecurity’s multi-features, nProtect provides online banking/payment security to financial institutions by securing the user’s system and browser during the online session against hacking, phishing, keyloggers, man-in-the-middle/browser, and financial malwares including Zeus and SpyEye.
