***MOD EDIT***
Not an Introduction Thread
*Closing Thread*

The Introduction Forum is for introductions To tell something about you; not to start a thread about a topic.“Intro threads” that are really “topic threads” will be removed.
Welcome to ATS, it’s time to introduce yourself.

You have posted what could be a very interesting topic in the "Introductions thread". This area is solely for introducing yourself (as you can see by browsing through other Introduction threads by new members). We apologize for this inconvenience, but its a necessity for a website as large as ours. After you have managed to get 20 posts under your belt, you can then start your own threads in their appropriate areas.

Strict code's like this are in place to help keep the machine 'running smoothly'. One of these policies is that members need to post their thoughts in the appropriate areas. I'm sure you'll understand the necessity for us having rules like this. It helps keep all the great threads and topics in their perspective areas of interest and not all lumped together, making it difficult to find when wanting to make additional comments.

With that said, I'm going to have to close this thread as it does not comply with the above stated rules. After you have managed to get 20 posts under your belt, start your own thread in one of the appropriate areas as we'd love to hear more on this subject you originally posted.

Thread closed, you can contact me by a private message for more information if needed after you have read the links provided above and in the final post below. Or you can also contact staff by alerting them here Complaints and Suggestions

Its self preservation if a flame/stuxnet virus that instead of spied and sabotaged, stole money or "adjusted" the numbers. it would be like a casino accused of cheating players, the players go to a different casino. or maybe
the virus is suppose to destroy a countries economy

It is scary to think that anything online is't safe but the banks want us to use
online banking as it cost them less.

The groups used recent improvements to two families of existing malicious software, known as Zeus and SpyEye, which lodged on the computers of clients at 60 banks.

While previous versions of the software have proved adept at stealing logon information, the latest variants automate the subsequent transfer of funds to accounts controlled by accomplices.

The findings, to be released on Tuesday by security firms McAfee and Guardian Analytics, confirmed and expanded on research from Japan-based Trend Micro Inc that was first reported last week by Reuters. "This looks like the beginning of a new technique," said Guardian's Vice President Craig Priess, whose firm specializes in protecting banks.

The software is sophisticated enough to defeat "chip and PIN" and other two-factor authentication and to avoid transferring the entire contents of an account at one time, which can trigger review, according to the study. Trend Micro said it had seen the automated versions in action in Germany, the United Kingdom and Italy.


They won't show anything on MSM as they don't want us to panic and pull
our money out.

And wecome to ATS by the way and have a flag

I want to use online banking though, it is so convenient, I've used it for years with zero issues. Then again I rarely have very much in there so it's never worried me. I don't really see how it saves banks money as they still have banks in every town. Hell the bank I'm with has 2 banks in the same town! I can't see it being about saving money.

With all that being said the banking system is still an evil monster that has done so much harm to our society. It should be done away with. What will it be replaced with though?

On topic, I knew there must have been more to it all. I wonder when it will eventually go main stream? Will it ever go mainstream (the news of the hack that is). I remember when bitcoin was hacked! Everyone was ripping into it, where are those same people now? lol

I wish my bank account got hacked in a good way. lol

You're like John Stewart and the Daily Show pointing out how the mass media is biased to be one sided. If you watch the Daily Show you know what I'm saying. For example Bitcoin gets hacked its all over the mass media outlets, but the world bank system gets hacked and no one even hears about it. Geesh.

The point being it could also be the biggest blackmail crime in history.If the hackers have coded in a kill switch they could be threatening to cause a global banking crash.I really don't know why we are not being bombarded in the media about this, it is possibly the largest fraud in history.I can only assume the story is being suppressed with gagging orders.We are told it started in Italy or in Southern Europe then propagated globally.

The story was only a bulletin when it should be in the mainstream media in a big way.The virus can switch instantly to different continents all the time creaming off small amounts millions of time over, depositing the money into mule accounts. The money markets would probably react chaotically if this was mainstream news every day.

never waste a good opportunity to blame someone else for your failures. what with so many "anonymous" and hacker attacks, it would be a pretty good cover to make billions of dollars "disappear" (into someone's already over-stuffed pockets)

This is why new kids are not allowed to start new threads, they fail to search properly and start a thread in the introduction forum.
