Online crime could become more direct and aggressive in the coming months,
according security experts.
In its annual Future Threat Report, security firm Trend Micro suggested that
an increasingly crowded underground market could push cybercriminals to adopt
new and more aggressive approaches to parting users and their money.
Specifically, Trend suggested that bank accounts themselves will be
increasingly targeted. Rather than steal payment information or password data,
malware writers could look to directly access bank accounts and transfer the
funds to third parties.
