Security Alerts

June 18, 2014:
While we do not have any reason to believe Investors customers have been impacted, we wanted to let you know to be on the lookout for the Dyreza threat. Dyreza or “Dyre” is a new family of banking malware that redirects the traffic to malicious servers, while end users think they have a secure connection with their legitimate online banking site.

Dyreza is spread through spam e-mail messages such as "Your FED TAX payment ID [random number]" and "RE: Invoice #[random number].” These messages contain a “.zip” file often hosted on legitimate domains, to minimize suspicion. Opening this file infects the computer with the malware. Using a technique called “browser hooking,” Dyrezea views unencrypted web traffic in the Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox browsers and captures an end user’s credentials by sending the user to malicious servers, while the end user thinks they are securely connected to their financial institution’s legitimate website. Please do not open any suspicious emails.

Our Online Banking partner is researching the report of a type of Russian malware known as Svpeng that is beginning to impact Mobile Banking applications in the United States. The malware looks for specific mobile banking apps on the device, then locks the device and demands money to unlock it. While we do not have any reason to believe Investors applications are impacted, we wanted to let you know to be on the lookout for this.

While we have heard of no specific activity regarding Investors customers, we have been informed that fraudulent text messages are being sent to consumers in an effort to steal personally identifiable information. Investors will never request info via text message.

A new financial malware, Zberp, has been identified.  While your computer's anti-virus program may or may not detect this threat, if you have not yet, we recommend that you download IBM Trusteer Rapport (which is available free from Investors Bank) to protect yourself against this and other financial malware.

If you have questions, please contact Investors Client Care Center at 855.iBank4U (855.422.6548).

Thank you.
