BSF would like to warn its customers about a new Windows malware that tricks victims into transferring funds from their accounts into bank account the attacker controls.
Following a successful login into the customer’s account, the malware then presents the customer with a message stating that a credit has been made to his account by mistake, and that the account has been frozen until the errant payment is transferred back.
When the unwitting user views his account balance, the malware modifies the amounts displayed in his browser; it appears that he has recently received a large transfer into his account. The victim is told to immediately make a transfer to return the funds and unlock his account. The malicious software presents an already filled-in online transfer form — with the account and routing numbers for a bank account the attacker controls.
• If you log in to your bank account and see something odd, such as a “down for maintenance” page or an alert about an incoming transfer that you were not expecting.
• If you receive a message stating that your account is frozen, and until an errant payment is transferred back, please notify us immediately by calling :
