banks let two point seven five _billion_ walk out the door website, i guess.

vnunet's got a story about banks and a scam known as phishing (whereby one sets up a fraudulent site--that looks like the real one--in an attempt to harvest peoples' docs).

according to this new study by an independent analyst firm, banks could've prevented $2.75 billion--that's B-I-L-L-I-O-N dollars--from being conned out of them simply by having tighter, more well though out security policies and practices.

makes you think, eh?

oh, and i'd also like to give shouts for mr. tom sanders (the author of the article) for not referring to these phishy criminals as hackers.
