Caution for those who invest by computer from home

joyfulguyAugust 25, 2006

The radio said this morning that a couple of investment accounts with investment dealers in the Toronto area, relating to tens of thousands of dollars, had been raided by hackers, with the investments being sold and other, speculative investments bought. They thought that the purpose was to generate activity in the speculative accounts and thus try to get the prices to rise artificially.

There was a suggestion that the investors who owned the accounts were working from a home computer, and may have been invaded by a spy system that recorded keystrokes, thus were able to learn PIN numbers.

Thought you might like to know.

Time to move this on down through the system ...

... to, eventually, fall over the edge of the canyon into the abyss.

Have a happy week, everyone.
