What is malware?

Malware is malicious financial software which steals your personal and security information and feeds the information back to the fraudster, who uses the details to access your account(s) and steal your money.

Malware can attack all customers and can be so sophisticated that it can work in the background to move your money, or trick you into believing that you have been unsuccessful in logging onto your online banking page, and prompts you to re-enter your security details, which the fraudster captures.

Types of malware includes; viruses, worms, trojan horses, spyware, scareware, crimeware and ransomware.
