Comment: Why are so many banks doing it wrong? (Score 1) 61

Did anyone not see these local MITM attacks coming from a mile away? We already have existing options which do not allow these attacks ... why do so many banks persist in doing it wrong?

mTan and Mobile ID are mostly immune (phones can still be owned of course, but if you don't use a single phone for both banking and verification the odds of pulling off an attack are very slim). Flicker/Photo TAN are almost completely immune (unless the attacker can find a buffer overflow in the TAN devices). Everything else on there is antiquated crap which made sense when criminals were less sophisticated and when making TANs with larger LCDs and smart-phones was expensive ... those days are not today.

Kleeneness is next to Godelness.
