Banks sound alarm on online fraud

Industry body Apacs said some 2,000 British online account holders had been taken in by scams in the past year, losing 4.5m between them. Many were duped into revealing their account passwords by phoney e-mails purporting to come from their bank. Others had their computers infected with programmes which allow fraudsters to record their log-in details.

Too bad the article doesn't say whether phishing or trojan horses were more lucrative prolific.
