Planned Cyber Attack of US Banks Poses Threat

  • According to reports from Internet security firm, McAfee a massive cyber-attack has been planned targeting over 30 US banks. The report, released on Thursday says the attackers plan to steal millions of dollars from bank accounts across the US. The announcement that cyber criminals had come up with a sophisticated form of the Trojan which could transfer money out of reputed accounts including Chase, Citibank, Wells Fargo and PayPal became a huge concern. Referred to as "Project Blitzkrieg," the plan has been successfully tested and the cyber-attacks are scheduled for the spring of 2013, says McAfee.
