Abstract: The PC Bank may be the most timesaving banking innovation since the ATM. However, it also brings new possibilities for thieves. This is mainly because we still haven't completely solved the growing problem of computer viruses and Trojans that can act on our computers against our will. Several methods are used against them, although none of these can be considered 100% effective. Even more, most personal computers have little or none virus protection, so they are very easy to attack. This can become a problem as nearly all PC banking systems rely on authentication with identification passwords. This system is very vulnerable and here we will show that it doesn't provide enough protection for the users that want to make transfer operations from their accounts.
