Hackers Target Online Banking

Frauds involving electronic transfers of funds from the accounts of small and midsize companies that bank online exploded last year. A recent survey of smaller businesses by the Ponemon Institute and Guardian Analytics found 55% had experienced fraud in 2009, with 58% of that involving online banking.
