New Malware Attack Targeting Bank Accounts

The FBI has issued a warning about a new malware attack targeting bank accounts. The malware is called Gameover and the FBI says it is able to defeat several forms of dual-factor authentication. The FBI suggests that consumers and businesses pay attention to suspicious emails purporting to come from NACHA, The Electronic Payments Association. As you are aware, NACHA does not traditionally send emails directly to businesses or consumers.

Receipt of a direct email from an organization such as NACHA should raise a red flag. If you receive any emails appearing to come from NACHA please delete them. Do not open or click on any links contained in the message. Be assured that PSCU Financial Services Information Security department is trying to block all harmful email.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact ITGRC@pscufs.com. Should more information about this security issue become available, we will inform you of the update in a timely manner.
