Banks generally don't disclose information related to the losses caused by unauthorized access to accounts. Nonetheless, Doug Johnson, vice president of risk management policy of American Bankers Association, highlighted that online banking was still safer than the traditional way.

Still developing Internet is creating “extra comfort” for hackers. F-Secure majoring in Internet security stated it had found 59,177 unique banking Trojans, one of the latest methods of Internet bank theft, on the web at the end of 2008. Trojan programs are usually received through a viral link on a greeting card or in e-mail spam.
