Have you heard about the latest phishing scheme? It’s particularly diabolical, because it doesn’t require you to take any action, other than opening an e-mail. When you do that, the malicious code is installed deep within your computer, and it can then force your browser to go to a fake website whenever you try to go to your own bank website. So far the scam is pretty limited, and is only affecting banks outside the United States. To protect yourself, make sure your computer is up-to-date on its Windows update patches. But this phishing attack doesn’t just involve Internet Explorer, so it doesn’t matter which browser you’re using. If you get infected, follow the instructions in the linked article above, and hopefully you’ll avoid problems.
