Banks to roll out Trusteer

Post Posted: Mar 16, 10 21:26

I thought it was time i contributed to FF as ive been a member for a while .

I have just read this on the Reg

Web Page Name

I can't see how this will prove anything given the way that malware (zeus in particular) can hide from AV and other detection methods. Isn't it a matter of time before a new variant is released to deal with Trusteer ?

Has anyone used this software or know anything about it ? (I did a quick search on here and drew a blank). Goolge wasn't much better than Trusteers PR machine and website.

My sceptical mind is at play thinking that this could be used as a get out for the banks should a fraud take place and the users PC is given a "clean" bill of health by Trusteer.

Your thoughts ?

Trusteer seems to sit between the browser and other interactions, and has a few interesting side effects.

I've encountered it with the role I work in, It's got a few "Tricks" that try to protect the install, for example it'll prevent remote uninstallation requesting a "Captcha" that needs entering to be removed, and prevents VNC sessions for example from seeing the Captcha text, and installs itself as a service.

I've not tried to work around it much to be fair, perhaps play with it in a VM?
